Visual Impairment

Our team support our learners with a visual impairment (VI) in a variety of ways including sensory activities and development of play skills, sensory stories, mobility skills, use of technology, and living skills. This is delivered through individual and group sessions, and supporting class teams.

Visually Impaired learners supported by the VI team have a VI passport. The VI passport contains essential information about the learner’s visual impairment, and information on how to support them in all activities.

The VI team is made up of teacher Julie and specialist VI nursery nurse Lesley.
