Today, Jack Rutter visited the school to inspire and motivate the children with his story of success over difficult circumstances. Jack has minor cerebral palsy in all his limbs after an unprovoked attack. Through a journey of rehabilitation and hard work, Jack is now the captain of the England CP Football Team. He is looking forward to leading the team in the upcoming Paralympics in Rio this summer.
Jack spent time with each class, leading a circuit of exercises, before speaking to the whole school in an assembly. Jack’s key messages were to have respect, self-belief, motivation and to keep active. There was even time for a kick-about with some of the children at break-time.
