Mrs Osborne said:
“I was overwhelmed by the amount of support our Year 10 pupils showed with over twenty-five of them giving up their time today to attend.”
This happens on Friday lunchtimes when a group of pupils from Icknield School come to work with a group of our Year 10 and 11 pupils. Icknield School caters for children and young people aged from 3 – 19 years old with severe learning difficulties, including autism and complex needs. Our pupils play a range of games and undertake activities with them such as painting and singing. Working with pupils in mainstream schools of a similar age helps to develop their social and communication skills. The visits also impact on our pupils, helping them to gain in self-confidence and able to help and work with others.
