Lime Tree and AGGS join the Neurodiversity Umbrella Project

Lime Tree has joined The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project, which is an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds we have. The school proudly set up a rainbow-tastic display in ‘The Avenue’ to represent the one in five of us who have a neurodevelopmental condition, such as ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia or Tourette’s syndrome. These conditions fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity. 

Lime Tree is helping to change the perception of neurodiverse/neurodivergent people and celebrating all the many strengths that come from thinking differently. Not only do they look amazing, but the umbrellas have also encouraged lots of conversation about neurodiversity and the school’s ‘No Outsiders’ ethos, as well as being the focus of a very informative whole-school assembly led by Lime Tree’s own SENCo, Mrs Lloyd, with lots of discussion about differences. Staff at Lime Tree received some fantastic feedback from children and adults alike who attended the assembly.

At Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, 25 brightly coloured umbrellas have been installed in the dining room also supporting the Neurodiversity Umbrella Project as sponsored by staff and families, and part-funded by the PTA. For Neurodiversity Celebration Week (18 – 24 March), Wellbeing Ambassadors led assemblies, form tutors dedicated time to celebrate Neurodiversity and workshops were led by the Year 9 School Council. Year 12 and 13 School Council Leaders also offered support.
