Our Sensory Room is for all children at St. Michael’s school and is designed for our SEND pupils to support positive engagement and achieve positive outcomes through sensory stimulation which can be controlled, intensified or reduced according to the needs of the child. The two main aims of our sensory room is to provide relaxation and to encourage intellectual activity.
We are extremely lucky to have a Multi-Sensory Room at St. Michael’s. This room is a result of the generous fundraising by the PTA and working in partnership with the school to equip the room with amazing resources and create an environment reflecting our vision and mission.
This is an inclusive provision that will provide invaluable support and opportunity for all children in our school. Our sensory room offers a range of multi-sensory resources including lighting effects, bubble lamps, star projectors as well as a range of tactile experiences. A range of different toys to touch and experience, movable water floor tiles, and a range of textured balls and apparatus. The benefits of the sensory room include increased concentration, improved alertness, increased creativity, cognitive development, language development, improved social communication and interaction, physical and mental relaxation as well as a reduction in incidents of aggression, increased sense of calm (for adults and children).
