Sir Charles Parsons School is an outstanding special school for children aged 11-19. Their curriculum supports the development of the individual and prepares them for life beyond school. The core curriculum is supplemented by a sensory curriculum and a personalised learning programme. The Sensory Curriculum in Sir Charles Parsons School seeks to offer a sensory diet that will help the students to improve, use and integrate their sensory processing, visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory and kinaesthetic awareness and skills.
Personalised learning programmes (PLPs) are designed to meet individual student’s needs. The programmes include sessions such as hydrotherapy, rebound and personal care/hygiene programmes.
The day will explore the rationale behind our sensory curriculum, how it is delivered and associated assessment methods. Special School colleagues will see students accessing the sensory curriculum and PLP sessions such as: sensory stories, Tac Pac and sensory exploration.
