Students from Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy took part in a local inclusive football tournament.
An inclusive football tournament is open to all students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The tournament was developed to provide students with the opportunity to take part in an exciting sporting competition in a safe and inclusive environment.
The Key Stage 3 students competed against other Cheshire schools at Moss Farm. Each member of the team showcased incredible sportsmanship and compassion to their fellow teammates and those they were playing against.
Sam Gorodkin, a member of Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy’s fantastic team, truly stood out for his kindness as he offered to play for the opposition as they were one player down.
The academy played six other schools from across the north west, including Culceth High School, Fallibromme Academy, Padgate Academy, Cardinal Newman and Adelaide.
Kathryn Evans, principal said: “Our fantastic students made us all incredibly proud, with their kindness and teamwork really standing out amongst the rest as they fully embodied our core values of courage and daring to shine.
“It is important to provide our students with a wide variety of opportunities that allow them to develop key skills and take part in fun and rewarding events.”
