Our sessions have a large emphasis on outdoor, hands-on learning, which are, by nature, inclusive.

We welcome groups with special educational needs and disabilities and are able to adapt our sessions to suit. Please contact us in advance to discuss your particular requirements. 

Some examples of how we can ensure inclusion:

Wheelchair accessible

  • our classroom has wheelchair access and a disabled toilet

  • the Sutton Ecology Centre grounds is wheelchair accessible including wheelchair accessible paths 

  • woodland habitat includes a wheelchair accessible minibeast hunting area

  • two raised ponds which are wheelchair accessible for pond-dipping

  • sensory garden has wheelchair accessible beds 

Sessions can be adapted to follow a route through Sutton Ecology Centre which only uses the wheelchair accessible paths to ensure inclusion.

Special Educational Needs and EAL

We are able to adapt lesson plans to include more visual and hands on activities, removing or reducing written work such as worksheets, as required.

Equality and Diversity

All children and young people are treated equally, irrespective of gender, race or background.
