One Albion Short Breaks Out of School Hours Sports Programmes

Introduction to sporting opportunities

Disability Short Breaks

We work in a mix of special and mainstream schools to deliver an out of school hour’s sports programme to children on the Special Educational Needs Register

This is an introduction to quality coaching which aims to raise confidence and self- esteem and encourage the child to participate in some of our other programmes.

We work closely with the parents to reduce barriers to further participation.

What difference has it made so far?

  • From teacher evaluation 100% of pupils confidence in sport had increased
  • 90% of the children now participated in more sport
  • 96% of pupils enjoyed the sessions

“The range of activities the Foundation can offer enables pupils to experience new skills and techniques. A recent disability project has made our pupils appreciate the implications of disability sport.

The approach of the Foundation enables our pupils to become confident in socialising and interacting with others as well as develop physically. The school have used the Foundation for a couple of years now and on every single occasion where they have been in school pupils enthusiasm and motivation for their PE lessons has increased”

Ben Taylor, Head of Physical Education at Westminster Special School

“I have attended lunch club and school holiday clubs for the last two years now and I really enjoy every session I come to, without the clubs in the holidays I would be bored and it’s also very good for me to make new friends. I never used to do any sport out of school but now I just want to do more.”

Elizabeth Griffiths, Bristnall Hall student
