Facilities within the school

 

Assembly Room

This spacious room is used in the morning for school assembly where our pupils meet to start the day with prayers, Lamh practice, birthday wishes and much more, depending on which season we are in. This room provides an ideal setting for Staff Workshops, School Occasions and Pupil Workshops. 

We use this facility for integration classes with our neighbouring schools, often a hive of activity, from dancing,yoga classes, playing pool and board games.

 

Sensory Integration Room 

This comfortable and peaceful room creates a safe space to provide individual therapy to pupils. The serenity of this room creates a space like no other. It is calm and soothing with soft lighting to add to the tranquillity. While here pupils can experience proprioceptive input, deep pressure, strength and coordination work.

 

Multi-sensory Room- This is a soothing space that stimulates the 5 senses of vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell. It allows the pupil to relax in a purposeful environment. It gives choice and control to the pupil for facilitating independence.
