Lord’s Taverners and Experia Commission Time-Lapse Video
We have already taken you inside the Experia factory this week to show you where amazing sensory room equipment is designed and manufactured. Recently pupils at Portfield Primary School in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire had a new multi-sensory room installed and we created a time-lapse video to showcase the installation process, in partnership with Experia.
The video was taken on site on Thursday 2 June and contains footage of Experia engineers working busily to get the room fitted ready for use by Portfield’s pupils.
The pupils who attend have a wide range of complex needs, many of which can impact on their learning. These encompass challenges including mild to severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning needs, complex needs including autistic spectrum condition, associated behavioural issues, sensory impairment, social difficulties, and speech and language disorders.
The school applied for a grant from Lord’s Taverners who in turn received support from BT. With the generous support of BT, £25,000 was granted to the school who were able to invest in a state-of-the-art sensory room including Experia’s flagship M.I.LE Sensory Area to give a calm controlled environment where children have control of colours and themes.
Sue Painter, Headteacher at Portfield School, said:
“Portfield School were impressed with the care and commitment that Experia displayed when designing and developing our sensory room. Experia listened carefully to staff to ensure that the design enabled our aims to be achieved with equipment that can engage, motivate and challenge children in new and exciting ways.”
Peter Saunders, Managing Director at Experia, said:
“I’m proud of Experia being part of another brilliant sensory project, all made possible by Lord’s Taverners and BT’s generous funding. It gives me great pleasure knowing that our sensory specialists and designers have had such a positive influence in helping the children develop their communication, basic numeracy and literacy skills and emotional and social responses.”
