Wanderers Sports Association
Epinay School are key stakeholders in the Wanderers and play an integral part in co-ordinating and organising these events.
The Wanderer’s Sports Association is a voluntary organisation providing sporting opportunities for children and young people with special educational needs. A variety of sporting events, are arranged with support from regional schools, which encourage engagement, participation and achievement and brings pupils together from across the North East.
Sporting events provide a range of benefits such as:
- promoting activeness
- developing fundamental motor and physical fitness skills
- improving sensory skills
- support teamwork
- motivate and improve confidence and self-esteem
Our aim is to help children and young people with special educational needs discover the pleasures of being involved in sport, from the enjoyment of learning new skills, to on-going social involvement and friendship.
