Okeford Fitzpaine Primary School has been successful with another grant application, this time through Allchurches Trust Ltd. We were very lucky to receive £500 towards resources which the children can use in a designated area should they need time to calm down and reflect. The space will be a great addition to the school, allowing our children somewhere within the classroom to calm down and return to learning or take time out to reflect upon our Christian values. This reflection area will also be used during non-learning times to get away and reflect on what’s happening around them.
The area has nice comfortable pillows and a rug which they can sit on, mood lightning, music, books and cards to help them focus on their reflection time. The children used the space for the first time this week, taking advantage of the comfortable fluffy cushions and watching the sensory light tubes
