Sensory Curriculum

Oak View has a sensory curriculum that has been carefully designed and developed to give pupils the best opportunities to develop. It focuses on early communication and cognitive skills, which, which are the basis for all future learning abnd and crucial to an improved quality of life.

We provide environments where pupils feed safe and secure and can learn by using their senses and exploring  the world around them. The sensory approach comes in many forms, including:

  • sensory rooms
  • dark room
  • visual communication and objects of reference
  • sensory activities and toys
  • exploration
  • ball pool
  • hydrotherapy pool
  • fine motor skill activities
  • gross motor skill activities

These sensory sessions are fun and stimulating, but have a purpose behind them. 

The sensory activities benefits pupils with PMLD and pupils with autism. In each case, it is tailored to their individual needs.
