DISABILITY AWARENESS DAY

As part of our PSHE, British Values and Citizenship curriculum, we are holding a Disability Awareness Day next Tuesday, 22nd September.

Two members of staff from the charity Enable Me, Chris Jay and Seb Trezise, will be leading a variety of activities including discussions and debates, designing logos and participating in Boccia, a sport similar to bowls played by athletes with severe physical disabilities.

Enable Me was launched in 2005 and recruits and trains disabled volunteers to visit schools to raise disability awareness and to educate and inspire young people to change any negative attitudes. The theory is that by enabling disabled people to communicate and tell their own stories, a positive message will ripple out across the school and into the wider community.

I am certain that our children will be both moved and inspired by the days events and expect that they will want to discuss them with you.
