Engage 2024

In May one of our young people attended the National Awards Ceremony for Engage in Their Future, a national event to celebrate the achievements of children on the journey through SEMH education.  He had been nominated to receive an award to recognise how very willing he is to give anything a go, and just carries on despite the changes in his life and any problems he has had to face. It was decided by the panel that the award for Innovation, Creativity and Arts would best represent his achievements.

Since living with us at Specialist Education Services he has been open to the idea of participating in anything put in place for him, including:

  • weekly gym sessions
  • weekly tennis lessons with a qualified coach
  • PE lessons, which include swimming, cycling, basketball, badminton and climbing
  • a residential camping trip to Wales where he particularly enjoyed canoeing
  • activities such as a community fete and sponsored pyjama day to raise money for charity.
  • completing an off-road driving lesson
  • various running events such as Bubble Rush (fun run through bubbles), The Playground assault course and the Inflatable 5k
  • attending a weekly drama group in Norwich, and he has recently been asked to move to the more advanced group
  • cooking sessions, which he really enjoys and has encouraged him to try new foods including vegetables, which he previously didn’t eat at all!

He was very pleased to receive the Platinum Award (the highest level achievable), and we are all very proud of him!
