Representatives of Morrisons and St Clement’s High School with the donations to the school’s special education needs development project.

A new project to help students with additional needs at St Clement’s High School in Terrington St Clement has been helped by donations from a supermarket.

The Special Education Needs (SEN) development project will help students with an array of life skills and Morrisons in King’s Lynn has given a welcome boost to the initiative.

The school, a member of the West Norfolk Academies Trust,  is looking to bolster its SEN provision by creating a space where pupils can learn a range of skills to support them into adulthood.

Morrisons community champion Tania Hanks said: “I was first made aware of the request to school staff for donations as my daughter is a teaching assistant in SEN at St Clement’s. 

“She mentioned it to me and asked if we had any of the items to donate. 

“As a Community Champion it was my first link with St Clement’s and I very much look forward to working with them in the future.”

The store donated buckets, plates, bowls, tea towels, cooking utensils, dusters, lab-style disposable coats, hand gardening tools and a plant to brighten up the area and so students could learn about plants and natural healing properties.

Carrie Chappell, special needs coordinator for the trust, said:  

“We are working hard to create a new facility which will be a base for the delivery of the personal delivery programme and this donation will make a huge difference.”
