"The fairground staff were all so helpful and friendly, turning down music or slowing down rides to meet the individual sensory needs of the children and also supporting staff to enable wheelchair users to also access the rides.

"This is the second year running that Roger Tuby and Son have opened up the fair to Coppice School and we are so very grateful that they give our students such a fantastic experience."

The school is a day school for 117 pupils aged 3-19 years with severe learning difficulties and autism.

Children spent the afternoon enjoying a variety of rides.
