James Rennie School is an all age (3-19) School for pupils with severe and profound learning needs, we serve pupils and their families across the North of Cumbria.

Our central ethos is to provide an outstanding education that supports all pupils towards their individual next step beyond School. Key to this is seeing every young person as an individual and building their education around their hopes and needs. To achieve this we as a School will enable learning strategies and provide an environment that allows this to happen.

We are raising money to build a playground that is accessible to pupils who have Profound and Complex Multiple Needs. These pupils cannot access mainstream playground equipment, we hope to raise enough funds to provide a playground that will be wheelchair accessible, safe and most importantly inclusive. Our vision is to see pupils enjoying play on a range of adapted swings, roundabouts and seesaws.

Within our playground we will have a sensory shelter that is has a range of stimulating mobiles, sound system and interactive objects to explore.

Additionally, we will have a water feature that we be a special memorial that remembers the pupils we have loved and lost.

Any donations are greatly appreciated.
