SEND Learning at Arbeia Roman Fort

At Arbeia Roman Fort, we are dedicated to supporting all learners including those who have special educational needs and disabilities. To support these learners, we are keen to work in partnership with teaching staff to adapt as appropriate our core workshop offer to provide inclusive learning experiences.

SEND Workshops

We offer a range of SEND workshops tailored to meet your history, archaeology, and art and design curriculum needs that also encourage children to build their practical, visual and cognitive and communication skills.

Activities include handling 2,000 year old artefacts, participating in an archaeological dig, creating decorative wall friezes just like the Romans, a bespoke tour of Arbeia and much more! Prior to your visit, you will receive supporting material to share with your children to ensure a relaxed learning experience.
