We have three sites: Waverley@Honilands, Waverley@Bell Lane, and our main site.
At Waverley, we believe that children learn best when they are happy and enjoying themselves. Our school was purpose-built for our students in 1990. Our premises officer and his team ensure the school continues to be well maintained and cared for. Our learning spaces are bright and vibrant. The students are able to maintain a level of independence, due to the visual and auditory cues placed around the school along with the handrails for students learning to walk and the tracking system for our track-seeking wheelchair base.
Our large, accessible swimming pool, small training pool and hydrotherapy pool are used regularly by our pupils and also by private swim schools.
Sand and Water
We have a sand and water room which gives the primary-aged children the opportunity to explore the properties of sand and water without the fear of getting wet. With changing facilities attached to the room, the children can change into swimming clothes and really enjoy the fun to be had with sand and water.
Our IT suite uses touch screen computers and accessible keyboards. We have a range of specialist software to engage the students. Every class has an iPad and some individual students have their own iPad which they use as their communication device. Classes have smart boards in class or a range of switch-activated toys.
Soft play and sensory gym
Our large soft playroom gives the students the opportunity to try new skills in a safe environment. The students enjoy the interactive elements in the room too. The sensory gym is particularly effective at settling pupils who have sensory processing needs.
We have two sensory gardens which the students can explore. All the plants in school have been chosen to ensure they will not harm the students if eaten.
The large playground
Our three playgrounds are well used by the students. We encourage outdoor play all year round. The main playground has space for our adapted bicycles. The large playground, for our oldest students, has a sunken trampoline, climbing frame, wheelchair roundabout and swing.
Our small sensory room is used by a small group of students to develop their understanding of cause and effect. Many classrooms have adapted their individual learning spaces into sensory areas too.
The students like to choose books in the library. Teachers also use the room for specific shared and guided reading sessions.
The students enjoy having art sessions in our art room. This room enables freedom of expression through the medium of art.
