At Bleasdale School we are fully committed to providing inclusive activities for all our pupils.
Our older students access the local community and Dallam High School.
Some of our residential pupils attend local Guide and Scout Groups on a Monday evening. They have a fantastic time taking part in the challenges and adventures of Scouts and Guides with their friends. Other pupils attend a Youth Club at Morecambe Library on a Wednesday evening organised by the National Autistic Society. Once a week we visit Costa Coffee in Lancaster after school as a social experience. Our Inclusive After School Club with pupils from Silverdale Primary School takes place weekly. During the Autumn term each year we perform at the Lancashire Schools’ Dance Festival at the Guild Hall in Preston.
Early Years have regular inclusion links with Silverdale Primary school. Once a week pupils from Early Years attend sessions at Silverdale school. These range from PE, art, music and continuous provision. The children attend supported 1:1 by a member of staff. Once a week a small group of Silverdale Primary children, around 6 pupils, attend Bleasdale School for inclusive activities.
Primary pride themselves with their inclusion links. They link with KS2 class from Silverdale Primary School. Each week pupils from the Silverdale School join Primary for a shared lesson. Pupils on a rota also visit Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School to join in with their physical development sessions. Bleasdale pupils work alongside main stream peers across the community.
The Secondary class have inclusion links with Morecambe Road School and some of our pupils have been going to access curriculum subjects such as ICT and Food Technology alongside pupils at the school, we are also looking forward to hosting pupils at Bleasdale in the future so that we can work and learn together during inclusion sessions.
Secondary pupils also enjoy learning outside the classroom. As part of the curriculum we regularly go out to explore the local community and what shops and services are in the local area and how to use them.
14-16 have taken part in inclusion sessions with Morecambe Road school, where pupils have come to Bleasdale to join our class in playing a range of games.
We continue our link with Dallam School, taking an active part in their Rebound Therapy lunch club with our friends there.
Students in the FE department participate in community activities both in the local and wider community. These may include Rebound Therapy alongside 6th form students from Dallam School, use of local leisure such as accessing local holiday park for bowling sessions. In addition to this pupils take part in regular community shopping trips to local supermarkets to practise their skills learnt in class in a real life and functional environment. Some of our students attended leisure sessions at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre to take part in Adapted cycling or Multi –sport sessions. In addition to this some students access work experience placements which are closely supported by familiar staff. Some examples of this are: Piccadilly Gardens, Morecambe Library, Morrisons, Tesco and Lancaster Plant Training Centre. Pupils also enjoy visits to local theatres, cafes, bars and restaurants.
