SEND Sports Programme
Our SEND programme is now in it's third year! This initiative has continued to grow and capture the interest of many children across Hartlepool. We currently have 140 SEND children involved in regular competitions from 13 different primary schools in the town. The children thrive on the opportunity to represent their school when competing in a range of multi-sports events.
The programme is aimed at providing all SEND children with the chance to play competition sports, including: Kurling, Parachute Games, Dodgeball, Football, Boccia and many more!
We have strong links with many sports partners in the local, regional and national area, such as: Hartlepool Borough Council, Primary/Secondary schools, colleges, Tees Valley Sport and Panathlon UK.
We also offer unique opportunities for young leaders to plan, delivery and evaluate a range of sports/events. The Young Leaders and Tutors/Head Teachers have been very complimentary of the programme and described it as an 'fantastic programme' and one that increases the motivation and enthusiasm of all Young Leaders and encourages them to want to work with children with SEND.
If you require any further information on this programme please don't hesitate to contact me at school.
We offer many different extra-curricular sports, including;
Multi-skills sports clubs
And many more ….
The Daily Mile is simple and free and gets children out of the classroom for fifteen minutes every day to run or jog, at their own pace, with their classmates, making them fitter, healthier, and more able to concentrate in the classroom.
Springwell School are committed to providing a strong Physical Education programme for all of our children. Within our PE programme all of our children take part in the 'Daily Mile' which has had a significant impact on the children's fitness, health and well-being and improved concentrate levels in the classroom.
For further information on the 'Daily Mile' please visit:
An active start to the day! Once a week all our children and staff meet at a specific location and enjoy a walk to school. This helps both staff and children feel motivated and healthier, ready to start the school day! This is a great way for staff and children to interact with each other when sharing stories and chatting about hobbies and interests!
