School’s Out(side) for All: Donated Wheelchair Macs make Playtime Inclusive

Children in wheelchair Macs at Castle School

It’s a sad reality that schools nationwide are feeling the bite of long term budget cuts, putting even basic services and routine maintenance at risk.
 
Nowhere is the impact more cruelly felt than specialist faculties such as Cambridge’s Castle School, a registered charity providing complete care for children with complex physical, mental, behavioural and learning disabilities.
 
With a higher ratio of specially trained staff to pupils, current allocations often only just cover the salary bills.  This leaves little for essential disability equipment such as hoists, motorised scooters, and wheelchairs, plus sensory aids including therapy balls and toys.

Students encouraged to go A Day Without so others don’t have to

A Day Without poster

Secondary school students are being encouraged to go A Day Without as a sign of solidarity with people with disabilities around the world who are often denied their most basic human rights. 

In an initiative run by international disability charity Leonard Cheshire, students are being asked to give something up that they take for granted in order to help make a difference for disabled students who do not have equal access to education.

Culminating on a day of action on Tuesday 3 December, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, pupils can donate £1 to take part and develop a deeper understanding of what it means to live with a disability.
