1st Fun Learning


We feel passionately about supporting ‘pushed out’ learners with our holistic approach to learning, encouraging strong positive relationships and developing a unique learning journey for each child, enabling them to practice skills within a calm and less demanding environment. We concentrate on working to support the development of the child’s ‘entire being’ by paying attention to their physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing as well as supporting their learning needs. Providing each child with a wide range of engaging and high-quality play-based learning opportunities, so they can learn to enjoy learning again. We encourage them to understand and develop awareness of themselves, taking responsibility for their behaviours and establishing successful strategies to manage their feelings.

We aim to work closely with schools and other professionals working with and around the child to engage them back in to education. We plan transitions back in to school in collaboration with school, staff and parent/carers. By working closely with the school, we can ensure that we are setting and meeting learning outcomes for the child’s development in accordance with the National Curriculum. We offer support through being positive role models and help to develop good relationships between education, the child and parent/carers.

Working closely with the parents/carers we hope to encourage their involvement in their child's development and educational journey, as this is a key element in ensuring progress for their child. We can also provide advice and support for the family when needed, especially around the SEN processes.
