Kingfisher House - Re-open

We are pleased to announce the re-openning of Kingfisher House in Bedfordshire. This three bedded home has been re-furbished and is ready for youngsters to fill it full of laugher and fun as of today!


Kingfisher House is a three bedded home located in Westoning, Bedfordshire. This home has been voluntarily closed since the beginning of the year when the previous Home Manager moved on.

The new Home Manager has moved internally from one of our other homes to run Kingfisher House. She was appointed as manager of Robin House in August 2016, where she gained an “Improved Effectiveness” rating from Ofsted, followed later that year by a “Good” rating with no recommendations or requirements.
Then earlier this year she moved to another Oracle home, Grey Heron / Jade Cottage to help support the team and ensure that systems were in place to monitor and record the progress of children. She also helped to put support in place to enable staff to upskill and progress their careers. The home was Ofsted inspected in July 2018 and was rated “Good” in all areas.

This experienced home manager is passionate about safeguarding and will strive to ensure that young people receive the best possible care and have all their individual needs met.

Fresh Start

Five weeks of the 2018-19 term have already flown by!


It has been an eventful start to the year and we have welcomed a number of young people into the Oracle family. Vacancies came about due to young people moving on to semi-indepdent living and home with their family members, which meant that new youngsters were quickly moving into our homes and schools with new challenges and excitment.
The youngsters have been supported in their transitions by our collaborative approach between home and school staff, family members and local authority teams - it has been fantastic to work together to build the foundations for the young people to have better aspirations and futures.

We all look forward to seeing the their personnalities, confidence and abilities shine through now that they are part of our Oracle family.
