Hi, I am Tracey page the Deputy Head Teacher at Mountjoy School, we have been running a Multi-Sensory Engagement curriculum for several years. This curriculum allows our most complex learners the opportunity to make and show progress. I can actively support others with the setting up of this type of curriculum including issues such as classroom organisation, resource and activity ideas, record keeping, evidence, assessment and data systems.

My name is Sue Gurney-Legg and I am a Middle Leader at Mountjoy School. I have been a teacher for 32 years, 5 years in Hampshire and the rest here at Mountjoy. I lead on Outreach support for all West Dorset Mainstream Primary Schools, as part of the TADSS Outreach Team. This involves supporting the SEND pupils to be included within the mainstream environment by modelling, teaching different sensory therapeutic strategies and setting up structured environments for ASC pupils. Many schools have adapted their practise through successful in-reach and changed their schools’ ethos. I can support and inspire you to develop your sensory and therapeutic approaches in order to support and progress children and young people with SEND.
