About Us

The Quiet Room

Welcome to Western´s Quiet Room

Educating children and ensuring that they grow up to lead safe, happy, healthy, and successful lives is at the heart of everything we do at Western.

We recognise that attachment and being valued as an individual are central to the learning process.

The Quiet Room is an integral part of the school and provides:

  • A nurturing environment in which children can explore their emotional needs in a secure and supporting situation,
  • Someone to talk to and a place to help children communicate effectively with their peers,
  • Immediate support in unpredictable circumstances,
  • Assistance with physical development,
  • Opportunities for small group work in which children feel able to discuss issues which trouble them.

Quiet Room Activities

As well as being a place to visit if children are worried or want to chat, the Quiet Room provides a wide range of fun activities that support the creative teaching and learning in the classroom as Western.

The Quiet Room Co-ordinator plans individualised programmes of activities that allow children to practice skills and express individuality, thereby promoting self esteem, enjoyment, achievement and enabling them to make a positive contribution.

The children enjoy:
