  • Teaching & Learning @ SDSG
    As SDSG we aim to tailor the activities we offer to the children, young people and adults we work with. To faciliate this, we group people based on one of three pathways: informal, semi-formal and adaptive. Where appropriate, we may also group by age, stage and physical ability. When deciding which activities to join in with or to book, please consider the pathway it is aimed at and ensure it meets your needs and ambitions. The pathways are flexible, so if you are not sure, please speak with the teacher/instructor for more information.
