Everything is starting to take shape now at our Mill School Bury – we are very excited to show you these latest photos.
Mill School Bury learning environments are designed to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere taking into account the sensory needs of all our children and young people. The enabling surroundings will see the use of muted colour schemes, specialist lighting, individual work stations and visual communication strategies. There will also be additional state-of-the-art therapeutic spaces including an Immersive Reality Room, a Multi-sensory Room with a sensory swing and a Rebound Therapy Room.
The quiet place curriculum focuses on communication learning styles, self-management, self-esteem, well-being, exercise, nutrition, massage and spiritual creativity values. The curriculum can also be delivered to parents, carers and the school community. The quiet space design reduces stress, anxiety and builds resilience skills.
The Rebound Therapy Room will feature a trampoline where children can experience a wide variety of movement and work on individual therapeutic objectives including managing stress, anxiety, social and communication development. The school will also offer a rich therapy and sensory diet for each child, dependent on their needs.
There will be a focus on outdoor education and vocational learning opportunities, including forest school, horticulture, sports and the sensory garden project development programme.
Classes will be small and the National Curriculum will be tailored to meet individual needs and interests of the children. There will be a huge focus on supporting children to achieve meaningful qualifications, including GCSE’s and learning skills to support life outside of school and to move into further education and work.
Stay tuned for all the information and updates as they happen.
