We are excited to be subscribing to the Wanderer’s programme this academic year!
The Wanderer’s Sports Association is a voluntary organisation providing sporting opportunities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. A variety of sporting events, are arranged with support from regional schools, which encourage engagement, participation and achievement and brings pupils together from across the North East.
Sporting events provide a range of benefits such as:
- promoting activeness
- developing fundamental motor and physical fitness skills
- improving sensory skills
- support teamwork
- motivate and improve confidence and self-esteem
The aim is to help children with special educational needs and disabilities discover the pleasures of being involved in sport, from the enjoyment of new skills, to on-going social involvement and friendship.
