Improving accessibility and inclusivity during playtimes.
Pontprennau Primary School in Cardiff
Pontprennau Primary School in Cardiff applied for their community change funding to improve accessibility and inclusivity during playtimes. The young wheelchair users at the school found it challenge to play the same games as their peers at break times and lunch times, which was affecting their self-esteem. This was sometimes the case during PE lessons too.
After attending an accessible sports day and deciding they were most interested in football and basketball; the project funding was used to buy equipment for these sports.
In their project feedback, the school told us that the project had helped with friendships and reduced isolation. The young wheelchair users told us:
“We didn’t always have people to play with, now we can play sports and with the ball at play time and enjoy break time more.”
