Activities for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities

Struggling to find activities that meet the needs of your child?

The All In Programme is for children aged up to the age of 18 who live in Shropshire and have a disability that prevents them accessing universal services without additional support.

All In short breaks are available to families when universal services aren’t able to meet the needs of their disabled child, and provide a range of opportunities such as youth clubs, holiday schemes, horse riding, cycling, forest school, drama, arts, football and sports.

You can find out more about the types of activities on offer on the Actio website. To take part in our ‘All In’ activities you need to register as a member.

BeeU Service Update

We are pleased to update you on how the BeeU emotional wellbeing and mental health service will be supporting children, young people and their families for the year ahead (2024/25).

The BeeU service commissioned by NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and delivered by Midlands Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) provides:

  • Emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people (0-25)
  • Neurodevelopmental assessments for children – autism for 5-18 year olds, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for 6-18 year olds
  • Community Eating Disorder Services for 0-18 year olds

They have also previously commissioned the Beam service who delivered the emotional health and wellbeing drop ins.

From April 2024 MPFT will enhance the BeeU service offer, with additional investment from NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. MPFT will bolster its capacity by growing the BeeU team, with more registered mental health professionals able to respond to the increased demand; and developing the prevention offer available in schools and communities.

NUT FREE SCHOOL

We would like to remind parents/carers that we are a ‘nut free’ school.

In the interests of protecting pupils and staff with nut allergies, we request that you do not send your children to school with any of the following:

  • Packaged nuts
  • Peanut butter or chocolate spreads containing nuts
  • Cereal, granola or chocolate bars containing nuts
  • Cake or biscuits containing nuts
  • Peanut-based sauces like satay
  • Any food made with sesame seeds (which can cause a similar allergic reaction)

The above list is not exhaustive. Please check the ingredient lists carefully.

Both children and adults with severe nut allergies can suffer from life-threatening reactions if they eat, smell, or touch any foods containing nuts. We are therefore grateful for your cooperation in helping to keep our pupils and staff safe.
