To give every child the support they need to to do the best they can at school, we believe it’s important to understand every challenge that different children face as well as possible.
With one in 12 boys and many girls having colour blindness, it’s so important that we are aware of the issues it can potentially have for children in school, and take steps to prevent it causing children to fall behind.
Last week, we were visited by BBC South Today to film a special trip from the Illustrator and Author Steve Antony. Steve was a wonderful guest, and carried out fun exercises with the children, as you can see in the BBC report. It was great fun to use technology to see how pictures are seen differently by different people with colour blindness.
A camera crew visit can be quite an exciting experience in school, and we’re so proud of our pupils who represented our school excellently, many children even giving insightful interviews with the BBC reporter!
