Broomfield School receives donation for sensory room

A sensory room for children with specialist needs will be built in Leeds after a £3,000 donation was made.

Pupils at Broomfield South Specialist Inclusive Learning Centre (SILC) will learn in a sensory environment based on light, sound and space.

The school will be the first in the area to have a sensory room of that kind, according to Leeds City Council.

Money was donated by housing management company Aire Valley Homes and maintenance provider Morrison.

Principal of Broomfield South SILC, John Fryer, said: "Without the support and generosity of businesses and the local and wider community we would not be able to pursue such a project.

"We aim to provide a unique educational facility that pupils from our school and our surrounding schools can greatly benefit from.

"Pupils will be stimulated and encouraged to develop creative thinking through a multi-sensory experience of innovative light, sound, projection and space which cannot be created in the normal classroom."
