Story

John Chilton School is a specialist school for children with a range of physical and cognitive disabilities. Our pupils face daily obstacles and challenges that they have to overcome to get by in life. During play times and break times the young people enjoy time to relax with their friends and peers. At this present time they find this difficult as there isn't a big enough space or designated area on the playground for them to do so. A group of year 7 and 8 pupils have proposed an idea of cycling 50 miles , on exercise bikes, during one school day to raise money for their comfy playground idea. This is a huge task as majority of pupils find it difficult to walk or maneuver their wheelchairs for long periods of time.
Building a space where pupils can relax together will help to improve relationships between the pupils, allow pupils to have ownership of something of their own and help to improve moods and attitudes towards learning.
This cause is very important to me as I am the proud form tutor of this wonderful bunch of young people and I would love to help them achieve their goal.
Thank you in advance from all of us :)

    Hi All, The event was a huge success and the pupils smashed their target of 50 miles and even went further completing a total of 55 miles. We also put on a cake and fruit sale throughout the day which helped us to raise even more money. The pupils are amazed at how far they have got with this project and are now starting to think about how to spend the money and what to buy for the playground. Thank you sooooooo much for all your support!!!! :) Jane
