London’s leading day school for specific learning difficulties

London’s leading day school for specific learning difficulties

Myself and Emily Norton (Forensic Archaeologist and Anthropologist) had the real pleasure of visiting the Fairly House School (London’s leading day school for specific learning difficulties) to deliver a Full Day’s Forensic Science programme to 95 pupils.  Both myself and Emily had an absolutely fantastic day at this school, which is situated close by to the Forensic Service Service.  This is the   testimonial received following our delivery at this lovely London school in March this year, the delivery was stage as part of National Science & Engineering fortnight. Testimonial received from the School The inaugural Forensic Day as provided by the Finger on the Pulse team proved to be a huge success at Fairley House School.  Judging by the feedback from pupils, teachers and parents everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt they had learnt a great deal and received an expert insight into the world of forensic investigation.  As a school for dyslexic and dyspraxic students we specialise in providing accessible and stimulating educational experiences for our pupils.  Forensic day ticked all the boxes as far as our students were concerned.  Our special provision team of occupational and speech and language therapists were also highly impressed with the nature of the practical tasks provided throughout the day. Many members of staff commented on how focused and engaged all 95 pupils had been during each and every session. The multi-sensory nature of the workshop and crime scene investigation ensured that all the activities were not only educational but also informative and entertaining both for pupils and teachers.  I would like to thank Jacqui Thompson on behalf of Fairley House School for a brilliant day and look forward to her next visit. I would highly recommend the Finger on the Pulse experience as an enriching educational experience of real life science. Kind regards, Wendy Kiernan (Science Co-ordinator) Fairley House School, Lambeth Road, London              ...
