Celebrating the Commonwealth Games

Addington Valley celebrated the upcoming Commonwealth Games by taking part in sports included in the Games. Students enjoyed Basketball, Cricket, Boccia, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Athletics activities, providing new experiences and opportunities to process their skills. We were delighted to have the support of Surrey Cricket and the Croydon School Sports Partnership to help us deliver this amazing day of fun. The day also included cross curricular links such as communication and Attention Autism sessions which our speech and language team and art activities. This is an important part of supporting the students’ wellbeing and communication. It was a lovely way to end our year of PE and Outdoor Learning.

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier.

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
