Eat That Frog’s promise to every young learner is to personalise their experience with us. We will offer a tailored approach to developing a shared vision with both the learner, parent and tutor. 

The four pathways

Bespoke Education

Bespoke education follows the four pathways that prepare them for adulthood. With everything we do, we focus on supporting learners access to work by offering a bespoke learning package: – 

  • – 1:1 Tuition
  • – Small Groups
  • – Team Participation
  • – Employability

The required outcomes outlined in their EHC Plans (Education, Health and Care Plans) are adhered to in every preferred way of learning.

Independent Living

- Hover Over - 

Improving learners post-16 support by encouraging them to take part in planning their curriculum together.

Bespoke learning experiences with Eat That Frog have the goal of preparing students for adulthood.

Community Inclusion

- Hover Over - 

Making each learner feel included in society gives them such a boost in confidence and raises their aspirations.

This is particularly important when it comes to moving into work and adulthood.

Health & Wellbeing

- Hover Over - 

All of our learners' emotional and physical well-being is of the utmost importance to us.

Instilling the importance of mental and physical health with cooking, finances, sleep, and exercise. Enabling them to develop a healthy adult lifestyle.


- Hover Over - 

There is no limit to the ways in which a job can help a young SEN person. Self-belief, new friends, a sense of belonging to a team, an income, independence, and so forth.

An education, health and care plan (EHCP) is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through SEN support.

EHCPs identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs to secure the best possible outcomes for them across education, health and social care and, as they get older, prepare them for adulthood.

If, following a period of time at SEN Support stage, your child or young person is still not making the expected progress at school, you can ask for an Education, Health and Care needs assessment.

It is always better if the education provider (usually the SENCO) makes the request as they are more able to ensure all the required information and evidence is contained within the request. However, parents and young people (over 16’s) are also able to make requests themselves directly to the Local Authority.

Forms can be found on the Local Authority website.

Places on the Post 16 course are commissioned by the Local Authority SEN 0-25 team.  You will need to discuss a Post 16 placement at Eat that Frog with the SENCO at the Year 11 Annual Review or contact your Local Authority SEN 0-25 team or caseworker directly. Please call us at Eat That Frog for more information.
