Welcome to our dedicated SEND Hub booking page!

In response to your feedback we have streamlined the booking process for the families of children with additional needs to make it clear what support is available at each club. With this in mind we have identified 4 key categories to clearly show the level of care that each of our SEND Hubs can provide. These range from Level 1 (mild-moderate needs, fairly independent), through to Level 4 (more severe needs, dedicated support needed). Please check the 4 Club levels below for the most suitable support for the child you are wishing to book on to the programme.

To help speed up the booking process we have also enabled a ‘search by region’ filter, which can be found to the right.
