I am running the Bath Half Marathon in March for Three Ways school.
Three Ways School is a Special Needs Academy in Bath and NE Somerset offering a unique, stimulating learning environment to over 220 pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities aged 3-19. My son Sebastien attends this school and will go there for a long time to come.
Three Ways School want to update and add to the play and gym equipment they have outside the classroom and we need your help. As we know equipment for disabled children cost a lot of money. We want our children to have fun indoors and outdoors like any other child.
Please donate if you can. Thank you!
More details below of what the school is aiming to achieve.
Our students receive personalised care and support throughout the school day but it is extremely hard for them to access mainstream clubs, resources and activities in the communities. The students at Three Ways need a higher level of specialist staff support to access activities and this makes the provision much more expensive than mainstream provision.
We receive government funding for core curriculum teaching, but that doesn’t cover ambitious extra projects. However, we are determined not to let that stand in our way of giving our students access to new experiences, to developing passions and hobbies, to being part of a team and giving parents and carers much needed care and respite – an opportunity this community deserve as much as any other school childPlaytime is often a difficult time for young people with additional needs. Unstructured time leads to people feeling upset and sometimes to very difficult behaviours and conflict. We try to minimise this with a lot of choices of activities and stimulating play.
We would like to install some new play equipment and update some old to make sure that everyone has something they can and are interested in playing with. The whole project will cost over £25,000 so anything you are able to donate towards this will be amazing, thank you!
