Chair of Friends of Milestone Academy

“Meapa Gym provides an excellent service to Ifield School and has done so for many years. Ifield is a Special Needs School providing for pupils with sever, profound and complex needs.

The facilities at Meapa are outstanding. It has a wide variety of gym equipment which is adapted and accessible to the needs of our learners. The changing area and facilities are always clean and all areas are safe.

The Meapa staff build up good relationships with the pupils and the school staff which is essential. They differentiate activities to suit our learners and challenge them appropriately. They are willing to learn from the Ifield staff’s’ experience and allow staff to intervene, where necessary, as well as allowing them to extend or help the pupils to achieve. The targets they set are realistic and appropriate.

The management has always been good and any concerns or difficulties being raised in order to make the learners experience as good as possible.“.
