PMLD Resource Base
Dosbarth Pili Pala provides specialist education and support for children who have profound and multiple learning difficulties. We aim to provide as many sensory opportunities as possible for your child to create an enjoyable experience. We seek to nurture their physical skills, self-awareness, knowledge and understanding of the world around them and their ability to communicate and develop a sensory awareness.
As a child spends time with us and develops, it could be said that he/she is climbing a ladder. Each step represents a skill, and that ladder is making that child more self-aware and independent. To meet each pupil needs they will follow a full and varied sensory curriculum tailored to meet their individual needs. They will learn to communicate in a manner appropriate to them with continued support from our speech and language therapist. There will be a self-help syllabus that will run through all that we do to develop their independence in feeding, toileting and dressing.
All children in Pili Pala are supported by a team of trained, dedicated and experienced staff with several specialists outside agencies and qualified professionals visiting the children on a regular basis. These professionals include a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, a speech and language therapist, the disabled children’s team and the community nurse. Besides out of school activities like swimming, horse riding and community outings our children spend time integrating into the mainstream classes to mix with their peers. It is our belief that the most effective learning takes place when both school and the home work closely together. We pride ourselves in excellent communication with parents and carers by building strong relationships
