Kestrel House School has been designed to a high standard to house our classrooms and meet the needs of the young people.
Our Soft Play area is designed to provide sensory input through tactile, visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular activities. These can help maintain emotional regulation as part of a sensory diet. Participation in play activities can help develop gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and balance skills as well as social skills such as turn-taking and sharing.
Our Life Skills room gives our learners the opportunity to gain the skills of everyday tasks such as cooking and cleaning. With support, they cook meals, learn how to use the dishwasher, washing machine, iron, and other useful skills such as washing up and hoovering. Which helps them lead a more independent life.
The Sensory Room is a special room designed to develop a person’s sense,
usually through special lighting, music, and objects. The sensory sessions help to promote self-organization and positive change.
The sensory room is there to create a safe space for the learners and provide opportunities for engagement in prevention and crisis de-escalation strategies,
as well as a host of other therapeutic exchanges to teach skills, offer a variety of therapeutic activities, etc. to promote self-care/self-nurturance, resilience & recovery.
Please note, the virtual tour for this school was filmed at a point in time, therefore the layout, classroom details and other areas may have changed.
