Inspiring, nurturing and empowering young people with a vision impairment.

See Me! Schools Programme

We are inviting your school to see differently – Meet George!

Raising awareness of vision impairment in children

New College is excited to be hosting our new, free, primary school initiative. We want you to join us in understanding what it’s like for our NCW students living with a vision impairment, learning how to do things, at times, a little differently.

Our aim

We would love to share our students’ experiences in an open discussion around what it’s like as a child to live with a vision impairment. Our aim is to give your students an insight into the world of a person who is visually impaired, outlining some of the differences (and similarities!) between us all and discuss ways in which young people can overcome barriers and achieve happiness and success.

Choose a visit to suit you

We can offer a combination of:

  • Virtual Assembly which can be streamed directly to classrooms.
  • A visit from Megan our Events and Engagement officer to deliver an assembly to your pupils.
  • A pre- recorded assembly to play to your pupils.
  • Virtual or in person workshops all about vision impairment and how students at NCW learn.
  • Classroom resources and plans for your teachers to deliver themed activities.
This is a fantastic opportunity for both students and staff and also complies with the national curriculum forming part of PSHE education.

"There is always an activity on at NCW either after school or at lunchtime, and coming here as a day student has really helped me with my learning."
"I like Chemistry and the fact that we are doing more practicals in class!"
"Its a special school and I get everything nicely adapted the way I need it. We do simple science at Science Club"
"Coming to NCW is great for me as I need all my work in Braille and at NCW its all there for me. I love taking part in musical theatre and choir."
