We are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of extended services based at Linwood School and in partnership with local children and youth services.
All SEN children in possession of an EHCP in year groups 1–14 (until young person’s 18th birthday) are able to take part in after-school and holiday club provisions.
The provision is funded by Bournemouth and Hampshire Short Breaks and by individual application from Dorset Social Services. Small grants are occasionally offered by private sector funding.
The provision runs for 4 nights a week term time and 8 weeks of the school holidays.
