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.
