Almost a ﬁfth of children in Britain are identiﬁed as having special educational needs (SEN). It is estimated that around 7 per cent of children are disabled and a signiﬁcant number of children have both SEN and a disability. Most children with SEN and disabilities are educated in mainstream schools. Around one per cent of the total school population is educated in special schools.

We have completed multiple projects for both Mainstream and SEN Schools across the country, working closely with the architect, main contractor and school. Requiring both adaptations of existing facilities (classrooms, assisted bathrooms and sensory rooms etc.) and the creation of Hoisting and Changing solutions for new build additions.
Students with disabilities require adaptations to classrooms, assisted bathrooms/hygiene rooms, sensory rooms and the creation of Hoisting and Changing solutions.

This publication outlines guidance and advice for both mainstream and special schools.
