Sensory & Therapy Rooms
We are very fortunate to have both a sensory classroom and therapy room on site at Oatlands School. The therapy room is used by staff members and outside professionals to provide support for children with particular needs, for example occupational therapy, play therapy and sensory processing support.
Our sensory classroom enables children to journey far beyond Oatlands with its interactive floor, floor to ceiling projectors, surround sound, temperature control and scent diffusers. Classes regularly visit the sensory classroom and enhance their learning around a particular topic by immersing themselves in locations such as Victorian streets, the Kenyan savannah, snowy woodland and more. The room, which was generously funded by the school PTA, is also equipped with lighting and bubble tubes for children with additional needs to use as a quiet learning space.
