SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) will effect nearly all children at some point in their early lives. This is nothing to worry about because it rarely lasts long and can easily be overcome with the right encouragement from teachers and parents.

‘Special Educational Needs’ refers to the difficulty or the disability that causes a child to have trouble learning things that another child of a similar age would be able to learn easily. Children that have special educational needs or associated disabilities will most likely need more help than other children their age. The name for this help is Special Educational Provision.

Children may struggle in multiple areas, which include…

  • Learning – the child could find it hard to read or spell.
  • Emotional and behavioural – the child may have low self-esteem or lack confidence.
  • Speech and communication – the child may find it hard to make friends and relate to others. They may also struggle to make sense of the world.
  • Physical or sensory difficulties – the child may have a medical condition or disability that can affect their learning. Examples include visual and hearing impairment.


Currently we are deliver PE provision into Severndale Specialist Academy, one of the largest specialist schools in England, with 430 pupils attending the school we work with age ranges 5 to 16 years. Working alongside teachers, Shrewsbury Town in the Community staff, aim to up-skill teachers to become more confident when differentiating, adapting and delivering lessons to create an inclusive learning environment for all pupils.

The delivery timetable created is bespoke for each school based on their needs and desired outcomes. After-school and lunchtime extra-curricular activities at the school are also available as part of the programme to provide pupils with a wide range of sporting opportunities.

Extras are also available to schools, offering visits from Lenny the Lion and player visits, along with fundraising opportunities and School of the Day match visits.
