It’s like having a different child

Parent of Year 5 child-2015

Whilst we were playing at 360 Play, your pupils arrived and I must say they were having great fun. One young boy  took my little one under his wing, much to my relief ! I have to say what a lovely little boy, he was charming and very polite. After talking to another boy (from Essex) I soon realised that the children came from a very special school. I went to chat to the teachers and discovered they were all special needs boys and girls.
I just had to email you to say what a pleasure it was to meet the children. It's a really shame that there is not enough schools like yours.
