Alfreton Park Community Special School Learning together for personal success
Planning has now been approved for the new school to be built! Further information will be available once we have more to tell you.



Swimming is an important part of our curriculum.


As the website points out: ‘Teaching pupils with special needs to swim is not only a good idea, it’s essential. Swimming lessons help kids with special needs in a number of key areas, including greater muscle strength and physical endurance, increased flexibility, more self-control, and, in many instances, improved behavioural outcomes.’

We have our own warm water pool which is a fantastic resource where teaching includes lessons such and literacy and numeracy, communication,  developing confidence, teaching water skills and participating in hydrotherapy/physiotherapy exercises in water.

Older pupils access Alfreton Leisure Centre for swimming lessons.
