EXPLORE it! (MLD students and their staff)

A new specially tailored programme for pupils with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD) and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), which has been developed in consultation with teachers and specialist practitioners.

Sessions consist of a pre-visit to the school followed by a tailor-made gallery-based session designed to match pupils’ needs. During their visit to the National Gallery, pupils will explore a single painting through their senses, and investigate how it was made in a practical workshop. The gallery sessions are multi-sensory, incorporating drama and custom-designed resources and props to enhance the pupils’ experience.
