Welcome toWhite Ash Special SchoolTogether, anything is possible…


Welcome to Sparrow Class!

Sparrow Class is a fun, sensory class run by Jude and Angela and their wonderful team: Sammie, Abby, Marian and Laura. Between us we have many years experience in MOVE, ICT, the Sensory Curriculum and MSI and several staff members are trained Intervenors.

Sparrow class is a busy class which is centred around the needs of each child. We follow the Sensory Curriculum, focusing on Communication, Cognition, Personal and Social, Tactile and Physical Skills.


Multi-sensory sessions are based around topics that are both relevant and motivating. Activities include Music, Intensive Interaction, ICT, Learning outside the classroom, sensory stories, massage, pre writing and wheelchair dancing.


Each child follows a personalised timetable and participates in daily MOVE sessions that work on targets set by Physiotherapists to develop strength, flexibility, head control and body awareness in addition to reducing secondary complications. Pupils are given opportunity to use a range of equipment such as standing frames, side lyers, wedges, Achieva learning stations in addition to their own class chairs throughout the day. Physical activities also include Special Olympics, Rebound therapy and Hydrotherapy as we know how important movement is when it comes to health, independence, accessing information from the environment and wellbeing.
