New minibus for the Garth School and the Priory School in Lincolnshire
The Garth School and The Priory School in Spalding (Lincolnshire) were the latest to receive a new Lord's Taverners wheelchair accessible minibus.
The Garth School meets the needs of pupils aged between 2 and 19 and is well equipped to meet their complex, severe and profound learning difficulties. The school works in close partnership with The Priory Special School, which caters for pupils aged 11 to 16, all of whom have moderate learning difficulties and many of whom have Autistic Spectrum Disorder and social communication difficulties. Both schools are part of The Community Inclusive Multi Academy Trust.
The new 16-seat wheelchair accessible minibus, which has been made possible thanks to the support of the local community, district council and other charitable organisations, will transport pupils across Spalding between both school sites throughout the school day and help pupils gain access to activities such as nature walks, horse riding and many other trips in the local community.
Daran Bland, Executive Head Teacher, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be receiving a new Lord’s Taverners minibus. It is vital to our pupil’s development and progress for them to be able to access their community and further afield. The minibus will be used daily and will provide us with the means to enrich learning and develop pupil confidence. We cannot thank the Lord’s Taverners enough for their generous support to the schools.”
