It’s out with the old and in with the new for Charnwood youngsters who have set foot inside their new school this year.
Pupils from Ashmount School in Loughborough have moved ultra-modern £9.3 million special school two months ahead of schedule. It offers places for 125 children and young people aged between four and 19 and includes a hydrotherapy pool, sensory area with interactive floor and artwork created by pupils.
Built by Leicestershire County Council, the school is located on Thorpe Hill campus next to Charnwood College.
Ivan Ould, Leicestershire County Council’s cabinet member for children and young people, said: “It’s terrific news that the project has been completed on-budget and ahead of schedule. “The new school features cutting-edge, modern facilities and will enrich the lives of young people and their families. It will also act as a valuable resource for other local mainstream schools with opportunities to share facilities and knowledge.” Ashmount School Headteacher, Dave Thomas, said: “The new building is a dream come true and our children and families deserve no less. “It means that we can have a spacious, light, modern learning environment and enables us to expand our inclusive work with Charnwood College and other Loughborough schools.
“We aspire to become a National Teaching School and as such, the facilities at our new site will put us in a strong position to increase our training and school to school support functions even further.”
Mark Sutton, Charnwood College principal, said: “Having watched the new special school take shape over the last year, we are very excited that Ashmount students will finally be joining us on Thorpe Hill. “The facilities are state of the art and will provide the learning environment that really does meet their needs.
Children are often not in control of the food they eat or the exercise they undertake. In addition, when they exercise, the respiratory implications and body weakness can create embarrassment amongst their peers as they face difficulties moving. Even so, it is critical to aid healthier eating, more exercise, and support a child who lives with obesity in fighting the depression, anxiety, stigma, and the health and academic repercussions related with obesity, which is a task much more far-reaching than it first seems.
We can clarify some of the fixes Dame Sally Davies outlines in her report: Time To Solve Childhood Obesity into three factors.
• Children need to play outdoors.
• Children need access to a balanced diet.
• Plans need to be put into effect by schools, manufacturers, health services, town planners and politicians to create better opportunities for children to have access to outdoor play and healthy food regardless of their social-economic position.
