The Ashley School Academy Trust
Aviva Disability Grand Prix Leagues
Aviva Disability Grand Prix Leagues are set up so that pupils from Special Educational Needs schools can enjoy football matches against other schools.
They consist of five leagues which include Severe and Moderate Learning Difficulty teams for boys and girls.
The leagues help to improve life skills throughout the event i.e. confidence, setting challenges, achievement, social skills etc.
The Ashley School Academy Trust in Lowestoft entered three teams across the leagues; two boys’ teams and a girls’ team.
Each of the teams developed throughout the competition and became more confident in their ability. Children and staff from the Ashley School commented on how much they enjoy the fixtures and that they play a massive part in the development of their social skills.
Jackie Milton, a teacher at the school said:
“A big thank you for organising another great Disability Grand Prix League. As always our players and staff had three very enjoyable days. Please pass on my thanks to all the refs and anyone else who contributed to the days”.
