This year’s partnership is more than simply about fundraising. We have partnered with Brookfields Specialist SEN School and will be looking to raise the profile of the school, its pupils and look to engage the community to make changes that remove unintended barriers to those with learning disabilities from becoming valued and active local citizens.

All the pupils at the School have the SAME aspirations as any other person, but require a DIFFERENT approach to get there. This different approach takes resources over and above the funding that the School receives. Brookfields registered charity enables these extra community based opportunities to be delivered.
Brookfields School is delighted to be Reading Joggers 2023/24 nominated local charity and would like to offer its skills and expertise to the members including use of its facilities and training such as First Aid and Disability awareness training.


Brookfields School is a Special Educational Needs School based in Tilehurst. It has 238 pupils and employs 170 staff. It is a West Berkshire Local Authority Maintained School catering for pupils from ages three to nineteen with a range of disabilities from profound and severe to more moderate, many pupils have a diagnosis of Autism.
