Alderman Knight School

An innovative special school rigorously promoting healthy living This special school (71 students with moderate and additional learning difficulties) is bursting with health in so many ways. The school has embraced the Healthy Schools Initiative with a passion and children are encouraged to think about food – how to grow it, cook it and buy it. The school has introduced schemes including:
– a thriving Breakfast Club – a big bonus for parents of children with learning difficulties
– children are given opportunities to take part in play, sport and dancing
– artwork is a big part of school life with a view to improving the emotional well being of the pupils
– ‘Thought for the day’ – a moment when children are encouraged to ponder moral, political and ethical questions.
