Kirklees SEN Primaries

Design proposals for four new build special needs schools in association with Wates Construction. The detailed design concentrated on the provision of secure play and explored accessibility of environmental education for all. Careful planning was required to provide spaces that were suitable for varying special needs, including SLD, MLD and EBD, often necessitating division between external areas. Close dialogue with the schools enabled teacher and pupil input throughout the design process. A school design tool-kit enabled pupils and teachers to select planting character palettes and colour themes used to develop the detailed designs.
