A SPORTS festival was held at Selston Arts and Community College for pupils with disabilities.

The Inclusive Festival was held for over 50 pupils from six local primary schools, all who had some sort of special educational need.

Students each took part in an activity circuit and each pupil had a go at seven different practical activities.

Parents, carers and grandparents went along to watch their children taking part.

The festival has been held at Selston for several years.

Debbie Green at the school said: “It’s a good opportunity for pupils to represent their schools, when they would often not get the chance to in more traditional sporting competitions.”

Schools who participated were Brinsley Primary School, Holly Hill Primary and Nursery School, Jacksdale Primary and Nursery School, Selston C of E Infants and Nursery School, Underwood C of E Infants and Nursery School amd Westwood Infant and Nursery School.

The festival was organised by the year eight sports leaders.
