Is it ok to allow breaks for SEN children and not others?


Yes, it’s important for children with SEN to have regular movement breaks, particularly if they are often a fidgety child, this will help their general level of attention. It’s more advisable to fit as many proprioceptive activities into the day for the whole class as possible (e.g. Animal walks or posture preparation before any writing activity) – this will help everyone’s attention and concentration.
