Sensory Room Goal in sight!

John Fielding Special School receives £5,000 donation!

We are excited to announce that we have been awarded a £5,000 grant from The Medlock Charitable Trust. This great news means we are getting even closer to our target and will soon be able to install the much needed bespoke sensory equipment at John Fielding Special School.medlock trust

John Fielding Special School provides a broad and differentiated curriculum designed to meet the unique needs of all their pupils. Pupils can range in age from 2 -19 years old and all have severe learning difficulties, some also have an autistic spectrum disorder, epilepsy, a physical disability, sensory impairment, medical needs and/or a communication difficulty.

We currently have a sensory room that was devised 9 years ago and fundraised for internally. The equipment is used on a daily basis and is now in a poor state of repair.  Many items have had to be removed completely and the room is now mostly used as a calming space for pupils.

The space requires complete refurbishment and the purchase of new bespoke sensory equipment.

Karen Smith, Head of Site, “We are very grateful to The Medlock Trust for this funding.  Our staff and volunteers have already worked so hard to raise over £5,000 themselves, now with this boost from Medlock, we are on a running total of £10,069! We now need a final push to reach our goal of £23,000 in order to make a huge difference to our pupils.”
