The Friends of The Milestone School

About us

The Friends Charity makes such a difference to the pupils of The Milestone (SEN) School, Gloucester. Like all schools, including SEND, this one needs HELP! The Friends underpin some extra-curricular activities which help prepare the pupils for life post-16, offer enjoyment for some very significantly challenged children & support for their troubled families. This extra funding means many more of these CAN & WILL BE provided. Friends is a trusty prop for this excellent 325 pupil (age 2-16) school, educating and caring for all with Significant, Minor or Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulty and a range of physical, neural, genetic and sensory conditions. All pupils need some support. Some are on the Autistic spectrum, others are visually/hearing impaired, wheelchair reliant (1 in 6)/physically disabled or exhibit communication and/or behavioural difficulty. Further supported are those with the genetic conditions, Down's syndrome and epilepsy.
