Other notes

We cater for all SEND needs including those who require support with hygiene including those who are incontinet or wearing pads.

We have limited staffing though can support 2 1:1 each session - as long as they will benefit from the activities on offer. 

We accept all young people with any SEND and willing to learn about those we may not have come across. 

Our space is big enough to support wheelchair users and those using walking aids. 

Our staff are Makaton trained so can support non-verbal students. 

We cover Reading and use community centres, though we do have additonal activites running in Bracknell. 

Many of our students have a diganosis and some students come from a looked after background. If your child struggles in mainstream please do feel free to come along.
