Special Education

This quote by Robert Michael Hensel, who was born with Spina bifida, sums up the ethos held by Tregolls Academy. Incidentally, Robert is also a Guinness World Records holder for the longest non-stop wheelie in a wheelchair, covering a total distance of 6.178 miles! Amazing!

Tregolls aims to meet the needs of every pupil within the school and for those with additional requirements, further measures are taken to help alleviate any unnecessary pressure. A key objective at Tregolls is to ensure that every child, irrespective of their need and ability, is made to feel welcomed, supported, and equal. Tregolls believes that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to SEND support. The key is to treat everyone on an individual basis and cater to their specific needs. This helps to foster an atmosphere of inclusivity and support, which, above all else, helps pupils to thrive.

The school’s SEND lead, Mrs Claire Davis, works Monday – Thursday and is always happy to meet with you or talk over the phone should you have any queries or concerns about your child.

The Wave Project – Changing Lives through Surfing

At the Wave Project, young people are helped to reduce anxiety and improve confidence through surfing.

The Wave Project – Cornwall is an award-winning intervention, held at Newquay’s Towan Beach. It uses local surfers to help young people to overcome challenges and develop a sense of pride in their achievements whilst teaching them to surf. The sessions are delivered by a mix of paid staff and volunteer surf-mentors who work either 1:1 or with a group. In July, we referred Aiden, a Y4 pupil, to the Wave Project.

This is what Aiden has written about it the first time he went: The Surfing Assault Begins – by Aiden

I was excited and afraid at the same time and I was beginning to think that I would not surf any wave! Plus I met lots of people including the instructors, who taught me signals and ‘shakas’ of course. We did warm ups and I got taught how to surf. When I got into the water and tried to surf, I tried but failed and hated surfing. I tried again and I surfed seven waves! When I went home I knew the future of my surfing will be full of epicness!

Aiden has also met some very important visitors and he was quick to ask for a photo for his mum! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Aide, his fellow Wave Project students and volunteers on their first official visit to the South West of England. Their Royal Highnesses visited Towan Beach in Newquay and met children and parents who have benefited from the courses.
