Aurora Meldreth Manor School

Meldreth Manor supports children and young people age 6-18 years who have complex learning difficulties and is one of the few schools in the country that is also able to support complex health needs and associated difficulties. These may be as a result of conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, degenerative conditions or autism requiring a specialist approach.

Young people may have multiple disabilities, including sensory and physical impairments and benefit from specialist facilities designed to meet their needs. The highly skilled team of teaching, care and clinical staff take a holistic approach that considers physical, emotional, social, sensory and educational needs within a waking day curriculum.

The support provided enables each young person to engage and progress at their own level within a living and learning environment that is all about enriching individual lives and helping everyone to achieve their full potential as they reach adulthood.

Our aim is quite simple, to empower young people to grow in their own unique and inspiring way.

PAWS: Animal Assisted Therapy

Sarah is a qualified special needs teacher and for the last five years has been studying Animal Assisted Therapy. The Society for Companion Animal Studies explains that Animal Assisted Therapy is facilitated by health service professionals; such as therapists, teachers and nurses. AAT is goal-directed. There are a range of focus areas that can be developed with the use of AAT including, physical, social, emotional and mental health. Animal assisted therapists formally plan and monitor sessions. Goals are discussed with key professionals and/or parents (these can be linked to EHCPlans) and individual plans are designed. Detailed feedback is provided. These sessions last an hour and usually range from 6-12 sessions, depending on the client’s needs.
Sarah has taken part in rigorous training, by a leader in the field, Dr Risë VanFleet and is now a Certified Professional Practitioner in Animal Assisted Play Therapy™, one of few in the UK.
