The Sensory Room

A significant issue for the students at Cornfield  1

is finding a suitable, safe space where they can

relax and calm themselves ready for their next







During the Summer of 2018 a grant from the

National Lottery funding enabled us to turn a

little used room into a sensory room

incorporating amazing coloured bubble tubes,

calming music and moving images

as well as soft seating and fidget objects.






Although the room has only been open since September

it is already having an impact on the time it takes the

boys to be ready to return to their classes.

The moving images, such as the whales or the forest,

can be changed to suit the emotions of the moment,

helping the whole process.





Many of the installations have an interactive element,

the light panel for example has  big buttons which mean

you can change the colours, patterns and intensity of the

lights to help adjust your mood.

The room is fitted with cushioned flooring and seating

so that complete relaxation is easy and safe.


We are extremely grateful to the National Lottery!
