Is my SEN child able to come to SportNE?
  • It is within our policy not to exclude any child due to their individual needs, wherever possible.
  • However the needs of each child vary so decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the level of support each child requires to be able to fully participate and enjoy their time at Sport NE.
  • We request that if you are wishing to book your SEN child into camp, you must contact Emily (head of camp), to discuss if we are able to provide the staffing, knowledge and support to accommodate your child’s needs.
  • We also suggest that your child should come in for a taster morning, to allow a chance for the staff  and your child to meet, and to discuss any queries you or our staff may have.

  • For example your child needs to be able to understand instructions, interact with other children, understand safety procedures and let staff know if something is wrong.
