• Ofsted Report
  • Reading was our first site and is where Dingley really started.

    Our Reading Centre is based in the Kennet Walk estate off Kenavon Drive.  It has two rooms; a playroom based on the ground floor level, with a variety of equipment and resources for children to learn through play.  The room also has direct access to our garden area, maintained by our volunteers.  Alongside the playroom is a work room which is used for small group and 1:1 work.  Children can use this space to take part in focused activities that support their targeted work, away from the hustle and bustle of the main play room.  On the first floor, which has lift access, there is a second playroom, which houses our soft play area and sensory room. Children use this area throughout the day for group work and play.
