We welcome and support children with SEND in mainstream schools. We also design and deliver free sessions for students from special schools, as well as outreach sessions for children who can’t get to the Museum eg hospital schools.
Our taught gallery sessions are planned as inclusive learning opportunities and activities can be adapted for students with SEND if flagged up at the time of booking. We can provide visual description for blind and partially sighted children as well as large print resources, raised images and handling resources including, in some cases, original archaeological artefacts as well as replicas. We are able to talk through the museum context and aspects of a visit that may affect children with autism.
Visit our Access page for further information and to download our social guides to support school visits to the Museum.
