Keeping Active is very important to us here at Oaklands. We are lucky to have a fabulous Sports Coach as well as several excellent Rebound Therapists. Pupils have opportunities to take part in a wide range of sports activities each week including swimming, cycling, Rebound, circuits, boccia, curling and playground gym games.

We have a large number of adapted bikes to suit the needs of individual pupils. As well as trikes and walking bikes, we have fully supportive wheelchair bikes enabling even our less mobile pupils to get out and about around the local cycle paths.

We now have two large trampolines set up in school and offer Rebound sessions to many of our pupils. Pupils have a great time bouncing at their own pace, fully supported by trained staff. As well as having a great time, pupils also benefit from improved tone, mobility and emotional regulation skills.
