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.

Swimming

 

Swimming is an important part of our curriculum.

 

As the website Specialneeds.com 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.
