ADDITIONAL SUPPORT NEEDS OPPORTUNITIES AT ASTRO GYMNASTICS
We have been running classes for the Additional Support Needs schools in West Lothian for 5 years. School classes come to Astro and benefit from the safe environment while the children and young people exercise and have fun. The classes can use the specialised gymnastics equipment including inflatable tumble track and sprung floor. Staff and carers accompany the participants for the best outcome. School sessions are subsidised by Astro Gymnastics to ensure all schools can benefit from this experience.
ASN CLASS AT ASTRO
The session currently runs mainly as a freeplay session with a few structured activities depending on the children’s interest and ability. As this is a still a relatively new class we will see how it evolves from there on discussion with parents. We would very much welcome parental feedback on the structure. The current age range is around 3-7 years.
The children use our sprung floor, inflatable tumble track and specialised gymnastics equipment. They can climb, jump, balance and roll all in a safe environment with qualified coaches to advise and support. Children should be accompanied by a parent or carer to receive the most benefit from the class.
WHAT TO WEAR – Children should wear comfortable clothing, shorts or leggings and t-shirt are best, with bare feet preferably.
SESSION COSTS – The fee is £6.00 per session. After an initial 2 weeks pay as you go you can sign up to a block or monthly standing order. All Astro members pay £10 per year membership and must register with Scottish Gymnastics by their third week, at a cost of £11 (pre-school) and £17 P1+.
Saturday 10.15 – 11.00
Astro Gymnastics are an inclusive club and will always place children in the best class for their individual needs on discussion with parents. Many of our children with additional needs are in mainstream classes within Astro. We welcome open discussions with parents and carers so please feel free to get in touch or arrange a visit to discuss your child’s needs.
