Welcome toWhite Ash Special SchoolTogether, anything is possible…


Physical Education


Here at White Ash pupils take part in Physical Education and activities throughout the day during play time, free time, sensory interventions, school sports and PE lessons.


Physical Education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetabled time and which is delivered to all pupils.


Physical Activity is a broad term referring to all bodily movement that uses energy. It includes all forms of physical education, sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, outdoor and adventurous activities, and active travel (e.g. walking, cycling, rollerblading, scooting).


School Sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. in the extended curriculum) within school settings. Again, the context for the learning is physical activity. The ‘school sport’ programme has the potential to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in physical education. It also forms a vital link with community sport and activity.

Special Olympics / MATP - 27th June 2022

The Special Olympics Motor Activity Training Program (MATP) is designed for athletes who are unable to participate in official Special Olympics sport competitions because of their skill and/or functional abilities. It is recognised nationwide and is building momentum each year.

White Ash School began their Special Olympics training in Autumn 2021. All pupils on the MOVE and PRE-Move program were invited to participate and trained hard each week in their classes, working on different skills from mobility, dexterity, striking and kicking. The pupils finally celebrated their progression of skills in a full Special Olympics day in June 2022 where pupils took part in various activities and games from basketball and races to penalty shoot outs.
Everyone had a wonderful time and lots of fun was had and we aim to continue it with our next event being held during Sports week in June 2023

During his visit, all classes took part in a HITT circuit on the playground before attending an assembly where Michael talked about his disability and overcame losses within the sport to finally win medals which he showed to the pupils. Pupils were then able to ask Michael questions which was lovely to see all the pupils engaged throughout the morning.
