Rebound Therapy

Rebound Therapy is an integral part of our curriculum. It is an excellent activity that has many benefits for our students. We hold a number of sessions throughout the week to give as many students access to the trampoline as possible.

Rebound Therapy is the therapeutic use of the trampoline to develop and promote motor skills, body awareness, balance, co-ordination and communication. 

It is aimed at students with a variety of disabilities ranging from mild to severe physical disabilities and from mild to profound and multiple learning disabilities, including dual sensory impairment and autistic spectrum.

All pupils are assessed by a number of professionals prior to starting a rebound therapy programme to ensure their suitability.

Staff is specifically trained to deliver Rebound Therapy through Rebound Therapy course accredited by the  Professional Development Board for Physical Education which is supported by The Association for Physical Education (afPE)
