Physical and Sensory (PASST)

What is Physical and Sensory?

How do we implement this within the school?

At Rabbsfarm we adopt the following strategies and interventions to provide challenge and additional opportunity for our pupils with physical and sensory needs:

High Quality Teaching:

The pupils needs can be met in the classroom through everyday high quality teaching which can include considerations of the classroom environment. Important aspects that our teachers will consider are seating and positioning, sensory strategies and ensuring that learning resources are accessible. Additionally, all our classrooms are equipped with visual posters to support PASST including zones of regulation explaining how we can monitor and regulate our bodies. Our LSA’s have also received regular training from the Occupational Therapist in order to help support pupils that they work with in class.

How can I support at home?

If you think your child might need help with their physical skills at home you can support them in the following ways:

  • Playing a variety of games that require co-ordination, balance, and ball skills  e.g. catching and throwing, target practice, obstacle courses and swimming.
  • Encouraging your child to be physically active and engage in sports outside of school.
  • Playing with small toys and objects that can manipulate e.g. shape posting box, using scissors for arts and crafts, jigsaw puzzles, playdough.

Further sensory or physical advice can be sought from the Occupational Therapist according to your child’s needs.
