** BRAND NEW FOR 2018 **
This program is designed for those students in the school that struggle to stay in class let alone get their work done. With a growing number of students being recognised as having a behavioural disorder known as ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) some of our schools need an answer for those students that just don’t care about discipline (and perhaps their parents do not care about it either).
The Engagement Program has been designed to give the students something that they can be involved in and ultimately care about losing. This program can be run either during a period of school hours or after school hours on the school premises one day a week ideally for at least one school term. The students involved with this program will be chosen by the school and in an activity that they want to be involved in. The program offers 3 activities to choose from:
- Parkour and Free-Running Class
- Hip Hop Dance Class
- Yoga Class
The 2 team members involved with running this program are Nathan Jones and Elle Coyne.
Parkour and Free Running UK National Champion
Leicestershire Parkour and Freerunning athlete, Nathan Jones is a professional in the art of expressive movement. At the age of 12 he began his journey to pursue the limits of what his body and mind can do by running, jumping, vaulting and flipping his way into the 2012 Red Bull Art of Motion World Freerunning Championships in Santorini, Greece.
After competing in the worlds, Nathan was approached by the head of SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) in his home town to help mentor, coach and spread his story with students who struggle to find their place in the world. Despite Nathan being assessed with a learning disability, this did not stop him in the pursuit of his dream of competing in the world freerunning championships, graduating university, joining the police force and travelling the world. Nathan is passionate about helping students to believe in themselves through this program.
