UET Short Breaks
About UET Short Breaks
UET Short Breaks offers a provision for children aged 5-18 with SEND. The Short Breaks provision provides after school and weekend respite. Our after school sessions are from 3:30pm to 6:00pm, Monday to Thursday. Our weekend sessions are from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Saturday and Sunday. We are also open throughout the school holidays from 10:00am-4:00pm Monday to Thursday.
We promote and actively encourage independence and life skills that will help the children and young people prepare for their futures. Our Short Breaks Team do this by providing a meaningful and fun experience where the child and young people have the opportunity to try new things in a safe, positive and socially inclusive environment.
The children and young people that attend have a variety of additional needs including, physical, medical, and behavioural. The Short Breaks team are trained and competent to provide high quality support to enable all our children and young people to cater to each individual.
At Short Breaks, we encourage engagement in set activities, please see below:
- Soft Play and outdoor activities including sports
- Homework assistance
- Life skills including cooking and baking
- Art and Design

The children and young people receive an Individual Skill Plan (ISP) that captures areas of development that will be supported whilst they attend the provision. The Short Break team, parents / carers and children and young people all have input into the ISP and have shared outcomes for each individual.
