All calm at Potters Bar school
PUBLISHED: 10:10 12 December 2010
CHILDREN at one Potters Bar school are able to enjoy a new therapeutic space for learning thanks to a county councillor.
Wroxham School was awarded £350 from councillor John Usher’s locality budget towards the cost of a new sensory room.
The room provides a calm, quiet space for special needs children.
The funding will pay for equipment such as coloured lighting, blinds and toys for sensory enhancement.
Cllr Usher said: “Wroxham School does a great deal to support the families of children with additional needs and I recognise the importance of routine and quiet spaces for children who find day-to-day life exhausting.”
“I’m happy to help such an inclusive school and the children who will use this room.”
