SENsory Atelier Programme

SENsory Atelier Programme generously funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, gives space for children to lead their learning journeys, express themselves and access the world. It supports teachers without specialist arts subject / cultural education expertise, to enable children to lead the direction of enquiry, and reframe our understanding of how they learn. This collaborative approach shifts the schools’ reliance on external peripatetic staff, to giving teachers confidence and capacity to devise creative programmes informed by children themselves.

SENsory Atelier includes: 

JPD with School staff

Dynamic Cultural Education for children with SEND

School Social Pedagogy 

Sharing practice
