Special Educational Needs

During our Why Creativity Matters NOW conversations we ask 'what role can creativity play in supporting children with SEN?' Join us online, Thursday 14th October 4:30-5:15pm. 
All of Create Sheffield’s Partners do fantastic, high quality work. Here are a few examples of Sheffield-based companies that work directly with schools in this area:

The Sheffield Special School Creative Community is a community of practice supported by Create Sheffield and led by community musician Matthew Laurie. Its members are made up of Seven Hills, Bents Green, Rowan, Talbot, Holgate Meadows, Sheaf Training Centre, Mossbrook and Woolley Wood.

During 2020, Create Sheffield supported the creation of the Sheffield Special School Creative Community, a new social learning group for teachers who are passionate about the arts and creativity. Whilst the pandemic has meant that many Sheffield mainstream schools may have felt challenged to prioritise creativity within their curriculum, the Special School Creative Community has flourished in this area. Read more about the work the Community has done and some of the lessons drawn from work in this area. 

The Special School Creative Community have an online exhibition, sharing the work of some of their students. You can visit it here
