High Peak School have been providing fun challenges for all their learners to keep them active through this difficult and uncertain time. The ‘High Peak Home Challenge’ was created which is full of fun and exciting tasks for the children to complete, these included press-ups, jumping jacks, song writing, funny story challenges and much more.
One of the members of staff has also created another brilliant challenge called ‘The Big Question’. This has encouraged the children and young people to think creatively through story writing and crafts. Keeping active is so important for all the children and the team at High Peak School will continue to create engaging physical and mental activities which can be done at school and from home!
The school is set on the border of Cheshire East and the Peak District and provides residential and day education for children with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, individuals on the autism spectrum and young people with ADHD, dyspraxia and dyslexia.
The specialist multi-disciplinary team of leaders, carers, therapists and educationalists work seamlessly together. They teach and proactively support children who have been subjected to adverse childhood experiences, including trauma, toxic stress and associated mental wellbeing difficulties, aiming to break the cycle of adversity.
Sounds great – well done High Peak School!
