Found in many specialist schools and colleges, Calm Rooms are dedicated spaces where pupils can go to escape distraction when under the strains or pressures of their difficulty. Dave Heath, site manager at Portland School, has given us a great explanation of the improvements project he’s just overseen to the school’s existing calm rooms, using InStyle’s RGB (colour-changing) LED strips and other LED products.
Over to Dave:
“Portland School & Specialist College, in Stoke-On-Trent, provides educational and support specialisms for pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
“Alongside the usual classroom you would find in any school, we have Calm Rooms which are calming environments in calming colours, some with age appropriate character murals and soft seating. Calm Rooms are where the pupils can go without distraction when under the strains or pressures of their difficulty.
