Sensory Pathway 2

Sensory Pathway 2

The pupils accessing Sensory Pathway 2 range from year 3 to year 11 and are pupils with complex communication, physical and sensory needs, hearing and visual impairments and Epilepsy.

The curriculum is designed over a 3 year rolling programme and is delivered through a very sensory based approach to heighten the pupil’s senses. The lessons follow a termly theme which provides the basis of all activities throughout the weeks. This can be in the form of creative, hands on activities as well as story and music based sessions.

 Once a week the pupils have the opportunity to take part in a maths and phonic lessons to broaden their knowledge and skills. This also allows some pupils to make progress on to our subject specific Progress Points.

The staff are trained to deliver sensory programmes each day to those pupils identified as having significant sensory processing difficulties.

The pupils have access to a range of communication aids including Objects of Reference, PECS, Makaton and technology such as switches and Eye gaze. Structure is provided through the use of visual timetables and songs to start each lesson.

Once a week the pupils are given the opportunity to experience understanding of the world; by accessing day trips in the local and wider community.
