How We Work with SEND Schools to Design and Install Sensory Play Areas

Sensory play areas offer a variety of benefits for children with special educational needs (SEND). They can help to improve fine motor skills, coordination, balance, and spatial awareness. They can also help to reduce stress and anxiety and promote relaxation and focus.

At Commercial Play, we are passionate about working with SEND schools to design and install sensory play areas that are safe, inclusive, and fun. We understand that every child is different, and we work with each school to create a space that meets the specific needs of their students.

Our Process

  1. Initial meeting

We start by meeting with the school staff to discuss their vision for the sensory play area. We talk about the needs of their students, the budget, and the timeline for the project.

  1. Site visit

Once we have a good understanding of the school’s needs, we conduct a site visit to assess the space and identify any potential challenges.

  1. Design

We then develop a design for the sensory play area, taking into account the school’s vision, budget, and site constraints. We share the design with the school staff for feedback and approval.

  1. Installation

Once the design is approved, we begin the installation process. We work closely with the school staff to minimize disruption to the school day.

Continued support

After the installation, we provide ongoing support and are readily available to address any issues or repairs needed for other outdoor play areas.

Budget and timescale

We understand that budget and timescale are important considerations for schools. We work with each school to develop a plan that meets their needs. We also offer discount options to make our services more affordable. We are partnered with FundEd which can help schools manage their funding process.

Safe and inclusive

Safety and inclusivity are our top priorities. We use only the highest quality materials and equipment, and we ensure that our designs are accessible to all students.
