At Heritage Park, we build time into the school day for our young people to regulate. These designated and planned portions of time provide our young people with the opportunity to deregulate from the cognitive, emotional, social and sensory stimulation of the classroom setting as well as to settle back into the classroom environment following or prior to key transition points in the day, such as arrival at school, breaktime, lunchtime and home time.  

Staff at Heritage Park aim to work closely with our young people to identify strategies that each young person can use to self-regulate. This person-centred approach means that regulation time can look different from phase to phase, class to class and pupil to pupil. Some examples of activities that our young people have identified as being helpful to support their regulation include colouring activities, Lego, access to the school gym, access to the movement room and use of sensory tools that are available in school. 

Some of our young people require more regulation time than others, so additional, planned opportunities for regulation time are built into their school day.  

Regulation time is a valuable learning opportunity for our young people, who struggle to emotionally regulate and need the support of their trusted, emotionally available adults to work with them to learn a variety of strategies that they can use to help themselves feel calmer, more settled and able to access their learning to the very best of their ability.
