Home Learning &

Special Educational Projects

If you are home learning this academic year, or planning it for next term, we can run small projects to fit your needs. We bring exciting projects that both engage, teach and build confidence. We can set projects that connect to STEM and other subjects, using creativity as a way to engage. We can also run skill sessions that will teach both practical, creative skills along with the ability to problem-solve. We know how much our sessions will build confidence and ability to use initiative. We have experience of working with learners with a range of complex learning, social and behavioural needs.  Our project can be linked to the National Curriculum or can follow a plan of your choice. We work with you to develop schemes of work or you can join in on one of our online sessions. These sessions are currently running online and provide a great way to provide safe, social interaction that can be as minimal or as interactive as you wish. 

You can book as many sessions as you require (some sessions require a minimum booking block), to suit your needs. We usually work online via Zoom, or for longer or more regular sessions we can work at your own home (dependent on government guidance at the time).

For a more in-depth exploration of some of the projects we offer, please see our Primary and Secondary and College pages.
