Special Fenland school wants to set up a directory of places for families to have fun
A Fenland Special School wants to promote accessible leisure activities for their pupils and families.
Meadowgate Academy in Wisbech, which caters for young people aged between two and 19 with special educational needs, has carried out research to find out how families use their leisure time.
The school’s Emma Bird said: “We know that there are many fantastic local businesses that offer great
leisure activities that are suitable for our pupils and their families.
“But we discovered that there is no central place online that holds information about leisure activities specifically for parents and carers of children with special educational needs and disabilities.
“Families would appreciate having these opportunities gathered together, easy to find and easy to see.
“Our response to this has been to create a dedicated Meadowgate Academy Facebook page about opportunities for leisure which our school community can access.
“This is where we need your help!
“Do you offer accessible leisure facilities and activities? Would you like to promote your facilities and activities to our extensive school community? We can signpost your marketing
material to over 180 families in the locality.
“You can send us promotional material, web links, images to advertise on the Facebook page by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload them ready for the Summer.
“We look forward to hearing from you.”
