Aiming High

""Aiming High is a programme of activities and short breaks for children and young people aged 0-18 years old with a special educational need/disability (SEND) who live in Staffordshire. An Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is not needed to take part in these activities.

The programme is designed to boost children and young people's confidence and independence. Some activities are open to the whole family while other activities are suitable for children and young people to attend independently.

Activities include:

  • Sensory experiences, day trips, sports, youth clubs, nature and outdoor activities and much more.

Free activities every month:

  • Children and young people can access a set amount of free activities each month (usually one a month with extra during school holidays). For example, two sessions in February because of half term and two sessions in July and two in August. 
  • Free activities can be booked a month in advance from first - eleventh day of the month
  • Additional activities are available on top of the free ones and can be booked a month in advance from 12th onwards. A fee may be payable directly to the activity organiser for additional activities.
