We can make changes to educational visit to suit the needs of your children. We can offer a relaxed Planetarium screening. We'll give you visual supports for SEND and EAL pupils. We'll also send you pre-teaching resources before you visit.

If there are any other ways we can help or if you want to talk about individual needs, just ask our accessibility team. We're all here to help.
