Special Educational Needs Support

The First World War Battlefields Tour Programme encourages participation from SEN students. This section of the website provides guidance to help you and students get the most out of our programme – both before you go on a tour, whilst on the battlefield sites of the Western Front and when you go back to school. 

Much of the guidance you will find here has been produced by SEN teachers who have been on tour with us. If you are interested in helping us to develop additional SEN materials for the programme please email us at ww1enquiries@ioe.ac.uk.
