Engagement Programme

We work on a 2 staff to 1 basis and sessions are always aimed at the young person. We work with people who are struggling in mainstream educational schools and home education.

We run the sessions at our sister site in Clevedon.

Surrounded by the beautiful Swiss Valley countryside, guests take part in a wide range of activities in accordance with their interests. We reward a full program of activities with a certificate at the end of the term.

Each child will get their own tailored plan. Working along the EHCP (if one is in place). Working alongside staff at the stables, we aim to improve:

• Confidence and self-esteem;

• Communication and social skills;

• Physical skills;

• Greater understanding and awareness of the natural environment;

• Natural motivation and a positive attitude to learning;

• The ability to recognise and manage risk;

• Healthier lifestyles.
