Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

THE TEAM at Park Lane School showed MP David Rut­ley the work they do with young peo­ple with se­vere learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

Mr Rut­ley vis­ited the spe­cial school and had a tour of the pri­mary and Key Stage Three classes.

He met staff and a group of pupils, aged seven to nine, who were us­ing switches and a touch screen com­puter in an ac­tiv­ity. One pupil was se­lect­ing shapes by name us­ing the touch screen.

Mr Rut­ley and head­teacher Lor­raine Warmer also dis­cussed the pro­gres­sion of the pupils through the school, which has stu­dents of all ages, and the op­por­tu­nity that a num­ber of pupils have had to take com­mu­nity based work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ments.

The school works with lo­cal em­ploy­ers and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions that of­fer work ex­pe­ri­ence to its pupils. It would like to of­fer a wider range of work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ments for its older pupils.

Mr Rut­ley said: “I would like to thank Ms Warmer and the staff at Park Lane School for the im­por­tant work that they are do­ing. “It is clear that the school makes an in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the per­sonal de­vel­op­ment to each of its stu­dents.

“I hope that more busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions will show their sup­port to the school and its pupils by of­fer­ing much needed place­ments for the young adults who cur­rently at­tend Park Lane.”
