School environment assessments

We provide a broad range of school environment assessments on an individual, group and whole school level. School environment assessments help to maximise the learning potential of spaces around a school setting.

What is a school environment assessment?

A school environment assessment is similar to a learning walk, as it assesses the environment through a specific scope. Our psychologists use their knowledge and experience to assess what is working well and supporting learning, in addition to areas or practice which may require adaptations. For example, our psychologists could look at displays, corridors, classroom layouts, the start and end of a day, detention areas and intervention rooms.

What are the benefits of a school environment assessment?

Each school is unique and the benefits following a school environment assessment will vary according to the scope and needs within a school. Examples of the benefits a school environment assessment can bring to a school include:

Adapting environmental aspects of a school can bring widespread positive improvements through reducing distractions or even distress for some students with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

What happens prior to a school environment assessment?

Prior to a school environment assessment, an initial discussion would take place. During this time we would agree on shared expectations for what the school environment assessment would involve and the level of feedback or reporting required.

What happens during a school environment assessment?

School environment assessments are bespoke and created according to the school and their reasons for requesting a school environment assessment. We would create the assessment in line with the target area, for example Dyslexia. The assessment will often take the form of a learning walk. This will be discussed along with the scope during an initial discussion.

School environment assessments suit all types of school, and all budgets as they are bespoke according to requirements. Commissioning a school environment assessment could help to identify opportunities for targeted learning outside of the classroom, in addition to identifying strengths and areas of need within the classroom.
