Pupils are regularly given opportunities to participate in events within school time and out of school time. Details of events and participants are kept, and achievement rewarded appropriately. During the previous academic year and going into this year, inter-school events have included the School Games, soccability tournaments and matches, netball tournaments and matches, table tennis tournament, swimming galas, athletics meetings, basketball tournaments for both wheel chair users and ambulant performers. These sports tournaments, organized by the School Sports Partnership, have been invaluable as they have allowed our students to compete against other Special Schools in Teesside. This has helped in my role as PE coordinator in building links with other schools and has also provided the opportunity for our students to build friendships with students from other special schools during the tournaments.
