Alfreton Park Community Special School Learning together for personal success
Latest government guidance has today made it clear that schools will not be funded to provide free school meal vouchers or hampers during the holiday period. Therefore, we will not be doing so as is normally the case during holidays. Please keep in touch with Cheryl and Sharon if you need support.

Horse Riding

Class groups take turns to access riding at Mid-Derbyshire Riding for the Disabled at Tansley.

 

The pupils are encouraged to learn about horses, grooming or tack. They experience a totally different physical activity in an exciting environment.

 

Horse riding helps children gain a sense of body-awareness, a sense of self-control and self-confidence, often improving communication and patience skills. It also encourages them to develop balance, sensory processing skills and upper body co-ordination.
