Kings Mill School in Driffield caters for pupils aged 2 – 19 with complex needs, including medical needs, and they also offer specialist provision for children on the autistic spectrum or with multi sensory needs. In addition, their Residence provides overnight short breaks on a rota basis for 34 pupils who stay between 1 and 3 nights.

The school Residence has a bath that needs replacing, but there is no funding available.. The new bath has to be height-adjustable with a low rim for easy access. With this upgrade, the staff would like to provide a sensory experience during the bathing routine, including mood lighting, hydrotherapy jets and music. This would help calm and relax children prior to their bedtime, as well as creating a multi-sensory environment to stimulate their senses at other times. The facility would also be made available to other children at the school when it could be of particular benefit.

This specialist equipment can be delivered and fully installed by Kingkraft who tailor make items for assisted living.

The whole system will cost £17,319.90 to provide.

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
