Last week, we were delighted to finally open a new facility at Grange Infants’ School that will make a real difference for our pupils.
With the help of a grant from Swindon Borough Council, and amazing fundraising efforts from Friends of Grange(FoG), we have opened our brand-new sensory room.
The new room provides children with complex needs a space to develop and emotionally wind down, and can have a real impact on their wellbeing.
Our Principal, Eleanor Rushen-Gough said: “Our new sensory room is a fantastic addition to the school. The new facility provides an area to support our children with complex needs and also for the other children across the school to support their emotional regulation.”
Ellen Manktelow, FoG chair, who was invited to the opening of the room, said:
“Having such great support from the parents and community who attend our events means we have been able to donate 25% of the costs towards this amazing sensory room. As I entered the room, there was an immediate sense of calm. Well done Grange Infants for such a great idea to spend our funds on.”
At Grange Infants School, we believe it’s important to keep developing and improving the ways we can help every child succeed. We’re so thankful to the Friends of Grange for their hard work on this project, as well as our former SENDCO, Carol Shute, for putting through the application for funding initially.
