Inclusive Schools - SEN Reconfiguration and Adaptive Re-use of school accommodation

06 Nov 2024
Stage 2

This session will showcase the creative use and adaptation of existing school accommodation for SEN and inclusive schools for all. A series of architectural projects or varying scales, across primary, post primary and special education that demonstrate successful expansion, retrofit and reuse of existing accommodation to enhance existing school facilities, across all design stages will be presented. 

An Occupational Therapist from the National Council for Special Education will present guidance on Sensory Spaces in Schools, exploring minimal interventions required to create sensory spaces in schools, to enhance and promote the health and wellbeing of pupils and to create a culture where sensory space and strategies are used to support students’ participation and learning.
