Matthew is autistic and has learning difficulties. He isn`t the greatest at sport as he has poor coordination and self-awareness, but enjoys sport and will give anything a try. He may not be a winner but will try his hardest and have fun doing it. He attends the football club twice a week at school and shows determination to join in the game. He has proved that anything is possible if you give it a try. We believe that Matthew should have the opportunity of being an Olympic torchbearer, due to how much personal achievement and growing he has done over the past year since coming to our school; and to show that with the right support, teaching and encouragement anything is possible. We would be proud to have Matthew represent our school.
