Under lying principles are:

  • Entitlement-modification of activities to ensure they are accessible all pupils.
  • Take part wherever possible.
  • Integrity.

Extra-Curricular activities

PE host a weekly football training session on a Thursday afternoon for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students. This is a very inclusive training session for all students in school regardless of their ability. Every term we take part in a football competition with other Special Schools in the North West and we try to encourage as many students to take part in these competitions as possible. We feel as a department these experiences develop self-esteem and confidence in our students that helps them succeed in other academic subjects. At the end of the academic year, we arrange for the pupils to attend a stadium tour as a reward for all of their hard work and enthusiasm. Below you can see some of the photographs from previous tours at the Etihad Stadium and Anfield.
