The Wheels on the Bus

Alfreton Park Community Special School provides a safe and nurturing learning environment for children and young adults aged 3-18yrs with moderate to severe learning difficulties. Many of the students at the school also have physical disabilities which means that they require accessible transportation to allow them to gain entry to important external learning opportunities. These opportunities enable our students to make sense of the world around them and put their classroom learning into context. Some of our children have life limiting illnesses and the time they spend with us is precious, so we do as much as we can to provide them with experiences that will enrich their lives

In addition to physical barriers to learning, the school is located in one of the most deprived areas of the country which means that many of the children are unable to access many of these activities within scope of their home lives. Our school has a roll of 82 pupils and is situated in a low socio-economic area, ranked as one of the most deprived in England, with over 75 % of our pupils entitled to free school meals. As the majority of our pupils come from low income families, parents are unable to pay for transport for educational trips. As a result of this, pupil access to transport and to learning opportunities outside of school is limited.
