Inclusion and Opportunities For All
Yesterday afternoon when we joined you for the final session I watched my students confidently and happily enter the sports pitch, calling out hello to their friends, running up to them and greeting them which was equally reciprocated, they then asked Miss Turner if they could be with their friends in their teams.
Through the inclusive sessions our children have learnt the importance of being part of a team and experienced the joy of working together to achieve success.
They have learnt how important rules are to ensure fairness and safety when playing sporting games, to share and to respect one another.
I have observed the Owls show tolerance and understanding of the needs of my pupils and more recently they have begun to learn that M3 students have to play by the rules and that there must not be any exceptions to these rules. That they can challenge M3 students when playing sports and that if student who is 'out' doesn't want to be out they still have to be!
I hope that we will get to work together again in the future, the whole experience for myself, Becky and the young people of M3 has been incredible and something that will hopefully stay with us for the rest of our lives.
