Therapeutic Play

Therapeutic play is available for any child across the school who requires additional support to develop their play skills, social skills or emotional awareness.

Sessions are held on a one to one basis in the play room situated on the playground. During these sessions children are able to explore and create pieces of artwork using materials such as paint, play dough and chalk.

Children can also create imaginary worlds using mini figures, small world models, home corner equipment or dressing up costumes and masks.

Children are able to freely explore equipment in a quiet and nurturing environment for short sessions as often as they require it. We recognise that for children to be able to learn they need to feel safe and secure. Therapeutic play sessions aim to work through any anxieties or overwhelming feelings children may have in a secure environment.
