Past Consultations

Jan - Mar 2022

Rumworth School circulated a survey to all parents/carers in order to gather views with regards to activities and clubs for young people with SEND in the Bolton area. A mixed response showed that some families are aware of local activities and do engage in them, but a significant proportion of respondents were unaware of any activities available to them in the local area. Transport, associated costs of sessions, along with places being inaccessible to wheelchair users, presented as noted barriers.

There was also a concern from parents/carers with regards to providers who host sessions, being fully equipped with the best knowledge to support and understand young people with SEND. Some positive notable mentions went to the great work that AFC Masters, Henshaw’s, Breaking Barriers and Bolton Lads and Girls Club already carry out. Some of the respondents also travel out of borough to Salford to access Red Hot Flames Cheerleading Academy’s SEND team.

In conclusion, there was a definite interest in the opportunity for more activities to be presented to the local area. Parents recognised that particularly since the pandemic, there is an even greater need to ensure our young people with SEND are offered chances to socialise, make memories and lead an enriched life.
