Alfreton Park Community Special School Learning together for personal success
On Thursday 22nd September, Western Power will be interrupting the electricity supply to the buildings on Alfreton Park. We will open to staff at 10.30 to allow them to prepare for pupils, and pupils will arrive at 11.00. We will then close slightly early at 15.00 to ensure we don’t run into any trouble should the power go off at 15.30

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.
