Correspondence regarding Covid-19

The School remains closed until further notice

updated on the 23rd March 2020

An update from the JT Team.

Our main focus this week is doing whatever we can to support the pupils who have the most complex health and care needs, in conjunction with the Local Authority. This may involve asking available staff to step outside their usual roles, if necessary. We would always go the extra mile for our pupils and will help in any way we can. Your son/daughter's class teacher will be contacting you frequently to check in and see if there is anything you need. If we can help we will and can signpost where needed. The advice remains that the safest place for anyone is at home.
We continue to work closely with the Local Authority and have already given a list of staff names to start this process off. We know the pupils attending the Steven Wiltshire Centre will appreciate a familiar face!
For our families on free school meals we will be in touch soon to let you know how you can receive additional support for meal provision.
Please do use the school contacts in your family packs to get in touch for any reason at all.
Please look after your loved ones and stay safe. Thinking of you all

The Hydro Pool

Hi, Welcome to our Hydrotherapy Pool here at Jack Tizard School.

The pool is heated to a comfortable 33.5 degrees Celsius and is 4ft deep.

Entrance to the pool is either via a gentle sloping ramp, with a supportive showering chair or using our overhead tracking hoist system; which allows the person to be hoisted from their changing/showering bed straight into the pool.

Our changing room has been designed to accommodate all needs. Each bed/area has access to a shower and is enclosed by curtains to ensure dignity and privacy.

We have a range of buoyancy aids from arm bands, rings, to buoyancy jackets and even specialist head floats to ensure that everyone can swim.
However, our pool is not like other hydrotherapy pools! We are lucky enough to have amazing switch-activated lighting, bubbles and fibre optics in ours. Children can enjoy an enriching multisensory environment with underwater lights, videos projected onto the wall and accompanying sounds and music.

We can change the entire atmosphere of the pool with a touch of a few buttons. You may find yourself swimming in an eerie swamp with green underwater lights, squelchy sound effects and crocodiles. Then, the next minute, you might be by a beautiful sunny beach, listening to the sound of waves, playing with beach balls and buckets and dancing to the exciting sounds of steel drums.
