Sensory rooms or quiet spaces are designated areas where pupils can use to relax when feeling overstimulated. The space itself is designed to aid in a person’s key life skills, chiefly with their communication, co-ordination, self-organisation and sensory-management. A sensory room is a setting where pupils can calm themselves down in safety, it also provides a positive effect on the senses.
Our room has very colourful moving lights, a full size lava lamp, a full size heated water bed, sensory boards, and a range of fabrics for touch.
We hope all our children benefit from this wonderful space, we hope it provides them with the opportunity to promote self-care, self-nurturance, resilience and recovery.
