Doddington Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock will help open a sensory room at a school in St Neots on Thursday.

He is visiting Samuel Pepys School to open a Lord’s Taverners sensory room, which features a relaxing and stimulating variety of lights, sounds and textures to help children with disabilities learn in an environment that suits their educational needs.

They can result in dramatic benefits to children with sensory impairment, helping enhance development of senses such as hearing, sight, smell and touch.

Sensory rooms also provide a distraction free area for children with autism and ADHD, helping enhance their learning experience and offering a retreat when necessary.
