Yorkshire and North East Branch Afternoon Meeting Acoustics of schools for SEN Ian Rees, Joe Bear, Adrian James Acoustics Ltd Tuesday 12 January 2021 at 15:00
This talk will explore the acoustic requirements for schools teaching pupils with Special Educational Needs (SEN). We will discuss the expanded definition of SEN set out in Building Bulletin 93 2014 and the duties placed on schools by the 2010 Equality Act, 2012 School Premises Regulations and BB93 2014 to provide for SEN pupils. We will consider practical acoustic requirements for teaching children with cochlear implants and present examples of how to meet BB93 RT requirements for SEN classrooms where exposed soffits are required for thermal purposes. We will also discuss the SEND tribunal process and what happens when it all goes wrong.
