We welcome and support children with SEND integrated in mainstream schools. We also design and deliver free sessions for students from special schools, as well as outreach sessions for children who can’t get to the Museum eg hospital schools.
Our taught gallery sessions are planned as inclusive learning opportunities and activities can be adapted for students with SEND if flagged up at the time of booking.
We can provide visual description for children with visual impairment as well as large print resources, raised images and handling resources including, in some cases, original archaeological artefacts as well as replicas.
We are able to talk through the museum context and aspects of a visit that may affect children with autism. Our experienced educators can make suggestions to help with planning for your trip.
Our SEND offer also includes designing bespoke visits for children who are part of the Gifted and Talented programme.
