Sky Badger in schools

What can Sky Badger do for your school?

Sky Badger is here to find all the help and support that your SEN and disabled students need all over the UK. We can also send you our postcards to pop in your student's book bags so their families know where to find help too. Your school or community group can also take part in the Sky Badger School Awards - an innovative disability awareness programme for Primary aged school children.
