Specialising in the delivery of school swimming packages, tailored to your school’s individual requirements, we understand that each school is different. From different learning outcomes and objectives, to different curriculums and regulations. 
SEN Specialists working with all schools to provide a unique learning experience. For each school we work with, our team provides a tailor-made programme, following Department of Education National Curriculum, as well as the Physical Education Programme of Study.  
School Physical Activity 
Physical activity plays a vital role in a child’s development and all of our coaches are passionate about developing skills, engaging young people in sport, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and providing the best possible environment for school pupils to have fun and thrive, whatever their ability. 
We are a specialist Special Educational Needs (SEN) provider, and we recognise inclusivity for all children. 
Sportsability works with a variety of schools in Hull and East Yorkshire and we would like to offer your school swimming lessons to meet your needs. 
We have completed one session out of four swimming session arranged for our small group of SEN children which was honestly one of the best things I have done with this group of children. All the children have significant additional needs and at least two of the children had never been swimming before. The children, due to their additional needs, have no or little awareness to danger and I thought this could end up going one of two ways! However Molly and Jenny soon put the children at ease and immediately developed a rapport with the children despite any communication barriers. The children absolutely loved it and it was amazing to see them all taking turns, listening, encouraging each other and developing their swimming. We got so much more out of it rather than it 'just being a swimming' lesson, even afterwards the children helped each other to find their clothes, commented on how well each other had and so much more. The biggest success of the day was a boy who initially wouldn't even walk into the building but eventually after encouragement and now/ next got changed and went into the pool. He is very much in his own little bubble and is generally unaware of other children around him but he sat with the other children and took turns with the instructors. We all agreed that it was absolutely amazing to be part of such a positive activity.
