Sensory at Manea

SENSORY CIRCUITS: A team of adults lead our sensory work in school guided by the school Special Educational Needs Coordinator. Imagine a room that has no bright lights, has soft music playing and children carrying out activities to support their minds and bodies ready for learning. The children work through a sequence of alerting, organising and calming activities. Some children come to school early for this sensory experience and others enjoy the experience later in the day to support their learning.

TA training

During the May training day, teaching assistants were shown the Sensory Circuits programme in the school hall. All the equipment was used and they discussed the positive impact Sensory Circuits has on children. This also gave the teaching assistants the opportunity to use the equipment and ask any questions.


The feedback from the teaching assistants about the session was:

  • The session gave a good understanding of the equipment used and how this benefits the children.
  • It was useful to know why it is used and how it can be used outside of the classroom and sensory room.
  • I enjoyed sharing my sensory circuits with everyone and sharing why it is important.
