Mondays- Forest school, allotment day or cooking sessions.
Forest School is a long-term outdoor education process that is holistic, and learner-led. It allows children to develop themselves through healthy engagement with risk, problem-solving and self-discovery, all within a natural environment in a hands-on and thoughtful manner. Foraging introduces children to wild and healthy edible foods in the forest, teaching young people how to ensure when foraging they leave some for the wildlife helps young people to develop a deeper understanding of wildlife and free healthy foods found in the outdoors. Our cooking sessions are a fun way to provide children with hot healthy meals as well as learning valuable life skills.
Tuesdays- Sports and creative sessions
Our sports sessions include a range of sports such as boxing, cycling, badminton, netball, basketball, dodgeball, dance and physical activities. Sports are an excellent way of empowering young people to develop teamwork, confidence, self-belief, social skills and talent. These sessions equally improve physical and mental health.
Wednesdays- Swimming sessions
We want to make swimming accessible, fun, and easy for everyone. Our SEN-friendly swimming sessions have been specifically developed for those swimming with and without a disability.
Our instructors have gone through dedicated training, meaning they can deliver inclusive classes for people with different abilities, impairments and access needs. We also have staff that the young people know and trust in the water to provide additional safety in the water.
Fun Fridays (TGIF) - Recreational offsite activities
Ever get that Friday feeling where your working week is done and want to let your hair down and enjoy social time with friends? Well, believe it or not so does your child, after a week in school. We have created "Thank God It's Friday" for our young people.
Every Friday our young people enjoy days out to fun places such as ice skating, cinemas, trampolining, bowling and much more.
After a hard week at school, social time in a safe controlled network enables our children to enjoy safe social time reducing exposure to street culture.
Our local after-school club offer young people a fun, enriching environment to spend their free time, either after school or during holidays and half-terms. These activities are suitable for ALL children with and without needs. Sessions are also available for school pupils who have reduced timetables, as well as young people who would benefit from therapeutic support. We organise different after-school activities throughout the week with the offer of transport.
