Simon’s Heroes children’s charity has gifted Two Rivers Primary School a 65-inch interactive display screen with integrated computer, to help stimulate and enhance the learning environment for its pupils with sensory needs.
Two Rivers Primary School in Tamworth caters for over 120 students aged 4-11 years old, who have a range of learning and physical disabilities and associated difficulties such as autism, communication and sensory impairment.
The school were keen to invest in some assistive technology that would create a more inclusive and impactful learning environment for their pupils, and approached Simon’s Heroes to see if it could assist. The charity, having previously worked with the school on another project, were happy to support the application knowing the difference and impact it would make to a number of children.
‘The screen has been a big hit with the children and has had a really big impact on our teaching and learning in the classroom already!
‘The children in that class are very sensory and mostly non-verbal. Being able to interact with the screen is not just a huge aid to their learning but it also improves their confidence and well-being. It encourages them to engage and most of all to have fun!’ Fiona Bradley, School Teacher, Two Rivers Primary School.
‘Thank you again for your generosity. Your work changes children’s lives and is very much appreciated.’ Sue Forest, Family Liaison.
