Making a Difference to KS2/3 Transition in Trafford 2019 – 2021
Delamere is taking part in this transition project and is working closely with Pictor Academy and Manor Academy. We are working towards:
The project will run for two years, from June 2019 – July 2021. The project is led by Karen Harris and her team from Trafford Educational Psychology Service (TEPS].
In 2019 Delamere School undertook a research project to fine out the impact of outdoor learning on pupil’s with a behaviour support plan.
Please see our results poster below with our findings.
In 2017, Delamere undertook a research project to investigate the impact of regular access to a sensory circuit on learning and behaviour. As a result, the sensory circuit is now set up permanently for children with autism and sensory anomalies.
Teaching staff, the head of Structured Learners and our sensory lead work together to assess the sensory needs of the children and develop a personalised sensory programme to support regulation and improve ability to focus on learning.
Children displaying sensory differences will have data collected in the form of; observations in at least three different environments; background information and reports from other professionals and completion of a Sensory Processing Measure form by key staff. This information will inform the use of strategies and resources to trial and successful strategies will be included in a consistent, structured timetable including priority targets for the individual based on their sensory needs.
Children also have access to sensory regulation equipment in our specially adapted playground. Equipment includes a pendulum swing, sunken trampoline and climbing net which provide integral vestibular and proprioceptive input to support readiness for learning.
