We are really proud of our members and will jump at every chance to shout about them and their achievements! This is a dedicated place to showcase our members and to shine the spotlight on their projects. Keep scrolling to hear from our new member the Peter Pan Centre.
How it works
At the Peter Pan Centre we are dedicated to life changing care and education for children with special educational needs and disabilities and the support their families deserve. At our centre in Newcastle under Lyme we support around 120 children each year through weekly specialist Education, Care and Development sessions that follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, delivered by our team of dedicated and caring expert Specialist Practitioners.
We work closely with the professional teams involved in children’s care to ensure consistency of support throughout the early years.
Our school transition service helps families through the sometimes emotionally taxing process of navigating the SEND system and securing the most appropriate school place for their child. We also provide advice and guidance to schools and other settings to enable them to better support children with SEND.
At Peter Pan we are here for the whole family, providing respite, home visits, weekend social activities, training courses, help with form-filling and meeting children’s needs in the home, signposting and more. We also deliver weekly stay and play sessions for 0-5 year-olds who need extra support, at children’s centres across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
What has been achieved?
We were awarded Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted for the fourth consecutive time in August 2022. We also won the local ‘Your Heroes – Inspiration in Education’ Award for the difference we make to children and families across Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Cheshire East.
During the next three years we will develop our Family Support Service to reduce parent carer isolation and improve wellbeing through more social events and expanding our stay and play sessions into new locations. As well as continuing to develop our practice, we will further develop our partnerships with local settings, FE colleges and universities to share best practice and widen inclusion in the early years.
