Sensory circuits are physical activities that help to alert, organise and then relax the senses of the pupils so that they are ready to take part in class activities. Participating in a short sensory motor circuit is a great way to alert or calm pupils and settle them into the school day.
Sensory circuits are available to all pupils from 9am-10am. Many pupils have a personalised 10metable to allow them to also access regular sensory input throughout the day as required.
Aim of circuits
Communication in school is the most important building block for our pupils. The ability to attend and regulate oneself is paramount to engagement. Many of our pupils find it difficult to return to a calm state after an emotional outburst. Mindful breathing is a simple and transferable skill which is introduced throughout the school and offers support to pupils well-being.
