Special Educational Needs (S.E.N)

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

- Albert Einstein


People sometimes think the term ‘Special Educational Needs` means a person is less able, less capable and unable to achieve. However, we are all unique and follow our own individual pathways in learning. In Schools we endeavour to understand these learning pathways and remove any barriers to learning in order that every child has aspirations of achievement and is enabled to reach their goals in academic attainment and in their talents and personal growth.

Some children might find aspects of learning difficult but often excel in others, the SMILE room is meant to help children with additional challenges achieve their full potential.

Sensory rooms have long been developed and utilised to good effect with children who have profound or complex difficulties. We have looked at these developments in conjunction with recent research.

We have gone back to basics and looked at what is helpful for the range of needs we have in mainstream schools, what help they need and the best ways we can achieve this. We want to show others how we feel a Sensory Room in a primary school could be, and how it could be used.

We would like you to know that there are many famous and successful people who have S.E.N and have made a huge difference to our lives. Below is a list of some of them who have or are thought to have had Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attachment, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or be on the Autistic Spectrum (AS) or a mixture. Imagine what life would be like now without these people. we litteraly could still be left in the dark.
