Our fully inclusive Ofsted registered after-school club provides young people between the ages of 8-16 years old with a safe, enriching environment that is constantly adapted to meet the needs of ALL young people. Young people are supported with therapeutic practitioners and a range of structured activities. We believe all children should have opportunities to make friends, experience new activities and have fun.
Our holiday club provision is not exclusive to but is designed to support a range of complex needs such as autism, ADHD, social, emotional, and mental health difficulties, disabilities, looked after children and those on social care plans. We operate between Monday -Friday during school holidays between 9am and 3pm providing a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities chosen by young people. We work with up to 65 young people each day between the ages of 8-16 years.
One of our key values at RUOE is social justice, and the idea that no young person should have to face inequalities due to their background, income or their SEMH or SEND needs. Statistics highlight he great difficulties with employment for parents that have children with additional needs. One of the major barriers being inclusive childcare. In our fight against inequalities and disadvantage, we provide childcare and emotional support to meet the needs of ALL young people
Our Gang Wolves 4 Change Intervention and Prevention programme, created by James Gwilt, aims to empower young people to foster new mindsets and encourage consequential thinking through a range of trauma-informed therapeutic mentoring styles such as structured, peer and group mentoring from lived experience mentors. Our intervention is designed to support young people at risk of or victims of exploitation and those involved in anti-socail behaviours. We provide opportunities and influence that encourage positive behaviour change.
