Perseid School mentioned in Parliament

Siobhain McDonagh, MP for Morden and Mitcham visited Perseid School in September 2015 to observe the work of SeeAbility and launched an early day motion to support the provision of sight tests in special schools. 

Below is an excerpt from her speech; 

"SeeAbility has piloted an excellent project to offer sight tests for children in six special schools in London. It has used its own charitable funds and specially-trained optometrists and orthoptists to visit these schools to test sight and dispense glasses, including Perseid School in my constituency of Mitcham and Morden. Children, parents and teachers are all seeing the benefit of their important work. Perseid School is a community special educational needs school, rated outstanding by Ofsted. It offers an exceptional supportive atmosphere for children aged 3 – 19 who have severe and complex learning difficulties, including learners with an additional diagnosis of autism, physical or sensory disabilities."
