The hydro pool is designed for pupils who have physical disabilities and restricted movement. The pool is safe and secure for every pupil and is equipped with ceilings hoists to assist pupils in and out of the water no matter what their physical challenges. Unrestricted by the barriers they encounter in many everyday situations, pupils can relax and enjoy learning in stress free conditions with staff who are specially trained to work within the pool. The water temperature is also significantly higher than it would be in a swimming pool.
Pupils with learning or profound and multiple difficulties also benefit greatly within the physical surroundings of the hydrotherapy pool which addresses and calms their sensory needs. Multi-sensory lights and sound are used during hydrotherapy sessions to enable pupils to learn vital communication and interaction skills in an enjoyable way that inspires their confidence and curiosity.
