Below are the 4 strands, accompanied by brief descriptions of our offers within those areas.

National Curriculum Physical Education

We have designed a curriculum of study that breaks down the potential barriers standing between young people with disabilities and the successful attainment of National Curriculum Physical Education outcomes.

Our methodology embodies outstanding subject knowledge, fully inclusive delivery and an individualised approach to holistic child development.

At present, we deliver High Quality PE lessons within all 7 Special Educational Need schools in Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.

Disability Awareness Programme (DAP)

At present, we offer a DAP that sees pupils within mainstream education participate in enlightening sessions that consists of theoretical and practical elements, these elements focus on changing pre-conceived perceptions of disability through establishing a foundation of knowledge surrounding the challenges that people with disabilities may face in sport and wider life. This is supported by pupil engagement within impairment-specific simulation sessions (Blind / Deaf).
