Our custom designed sensory rooms are available for all our children to use to gain access to appropriate sensory stimulation which allows their bodies to learn how to respond appropriately. We have found that a sensory room helps children improve their visual, auditory and tactile processing, as well as fine and gross motor skills. They also provide a sense of calm and comfort, helping children learn to self-regulate their behaviors, which ultimately improves focus.
Through our commitment to setting the standard for education we partner with People, Purpose and Planet led organisations, including becoming the first Educational Setting to be certified by Includability as a Committed Federation of Schools.
We have joined organisations such as premier league football clubs, household FMCG businesses and charitable organisations in our commitment to the delivering a diverse, inclusive, mentally healthy and sustainable workplace and centres for education.
