Physical and Health
Physical and mental health promotion is a focus of the College and students are encouraged and supported to be active and make healthy choices in all areas of the curriculum.
Our Manchester United SEND Officer works with staff to plan and support sessions including the ‘1km a day’ morning walk, inclusive sport lunch time clubs, inter college competitions, onsite swimming, cycling and trampolining as well as sports sessions at local gyms, parks, and local leisure facilities. see partnerships section of the website
Progress is recorded through our Physical and Health strand on Evidence for learning and staff work alongside health professionals to achieve the best outcomes for students.
Students with therapy and care needs have their needs met in College in liaison with the Community Learning Disability Team and a Multi-Disciplinary Team of Therapists. see Therapies section of the website
Therapy needs are bought in by College on a needs basis. Currently we have physiotherapy (including hydrotherapy) provided by Physiotherapy 4 Life, SALT provided by SLT for Kids and music therapy delivered by Nordoff Robbins. We have strong links with social care and community health teams to support our students and families with any issues. Students are assessed on entry to college by the SALT team and Manchester Physio and any equipment necessary for learning is purchased including assistive technology.
