All our students have aspirations and dreams of what they want their future to hold. Our aim is to provide an enriched learning journey for each of them before they move to the next stage in their lives. This video was fantastic fun to make but it comes with a clear message to all professionals who work for our students. Click on the picture to view our movie.
Each year we like to arrange something special for our students at Christmas time; Christmas 2019 was extra special. Highfurlong enjoyed a visit for the BBC who filmed our celebrations for a report. Students and staff enjoyed their Christmas dinner as a giant family down the corridors accompanied by piano playing, songs and Santa made an appearance too. Click on the picture to view the report.
Each summer, at the end of the academic year, the students perform a show for all of their parents. Every child takes part and they put on an outstanding show for every visitor, always stepping up to the challenge. We film the shows and share them on Seesaw to make sure each family gets the opportunity to see their child performing. Click on the picture to watch our latest summer show.
The Gift Box is our brand new enterprise shop. Each year our students learn the basics of running a business, from planning a product, sourcing the materials, manufacturing it and eventually selling it to raise money for themselves. Those products are sold here in our shop. Click on the picture to see a video of the opening.
Move Like Me
Funded through the Peter Harrison Foundation, and working in partnership with Highfurlong School (Blackpool), Slated Row School (Milton Keynes) and Budmouth Academy (Weymouth), young people have both co-designed and created a suite of online sport and physical activity videos, alongside some blogs to help inspire other young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to stay active over the summer. There are a range of sports and activities covered, including football, boxing, judo, athletics, cheerleading and Special Olympics Motor Activities Training.
