Duke of Edinburgh's Award does well in special schools

I enjoyed the article about the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (TESS, September 4), but was disappointed that there was no recognition of the work that is already being done in some special schools.

Four of our pupils with complex needs achieved their bronze award in June, with another 12 managing partial awards. Some of the pupils are presenting at this year's Scottish Learning Festival next week, talking about their achievements. Four are going on to their silver this session.
