Vision and Positive Looking

At Fairfield School we follow the Positive Looking scheme, devised by practitioner Gwynne McCormack, to support students with vision loss and impairment including conditions such as Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI).

Students work on personalised learning goals to support their vision, cognition and understanding of the wider world around them and how they see and experience it.

We are part of the NHS Pilot scheme for students in special schools across the country to access eye tests with qualified optometrists and glasses are dispensed in school to support students and parents who may have problems visiting opticians within their local community because of the nature of their child’s disability.

Our staff are regularly trained and their skills updated on a range of vision and Positive Looking strategies to ensure the best possible cognitive, social, emotional and sensory outcomes for our students.
