Pace is a ground-breaking charity which provides world class and highly specialist education and therapy services for children aged 0-18 with physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy. We are committed to ensuring that every child with a sensory motor disorder can reach their fullest potential in life and to continually advancing best practice in our field.
We deliver school services through our ground-breaking, Ofsted Outstanding primary and secondary schools, which deliver a unique curriculum that fully integrates academic learning and therapy input.
We also deliver transformational early intervention to babies and toddlers under the age of three. At this point, the developing brain is at its most 'plastic' enabling us, through intensive therapy, to deliver the greatest possible improvements in sensory and motor function.
Fundamental to our approach is a belief in every child’s ability to learn and make progress, whatever the physical or sensory challenges they face. Our educational approach is based on the principle that children with physical disabilities can learn to develop lifelong movement skills which will enable them to become more active and independent in all aspects of their life. Our specialist teams develop integrated learning programmes that are tailored to each child’s individual needs, blending theory and practice from a range of disciplines into a genuinely transdisciplinary approach to ensure each child can reach their educational and life potential.
We now directly reach around 300 children and families across Buckinghamshire, the adjoining counties and north west London. In addition, however, as a leading specialist centre we are committed to developing and disseminating our expertise, enabling us to positively influence educational and clinical practice for children and young people nationally and internationally.
