Set across two sites in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Windrush Primary School teaches more than 680 pupils, who between them speak more than 75 languages.
As an extremely diverse school, some pupils at Windrush have additional behavioural difficulties and found learning within a conventional classroom space challenging.
The Senior Leadership Team decided that creating a ‘nurture room’ for pupils with additional needs to grow and develop their skills without disrupting their peers, could have a positive impact on learning across the school. The project was completed in three months from January to March.
The Smarter Spaces initiative aims to help teachers and children thrive through the power of their school environment. The Dulux Trade team collaborated with the Schools, Students and Teachers network to review the impact of colour and design on learning outcomes.
