London, January 31 (ANI): An inner city primary school in Britain has come up with chill-out room for pupils, teachers and parents.

Bexhill and Town End primary schools in Sunderland spent 6,000 pounds to build the room providing peaceful ambience for disturbed children.

The room is fitted with calming lights, projections, soothing sounds, aromatherapy and even bubble machines.

"The life we lead means there are a lot of things which worry children, so we feel it's important they have this space where they feel safe," the Daily Express quoted Audrey Johnson, child and family liaison manager at the schools, as saying.

She added: "This is something we wanted to do after seeing sensory rooms in special schools."

Children's Trust Inspiration Fund supported area also has a family room modelled on a sitting room, where parents can relax and children can play in a nice family atmosphere.

Johnson said: "Some children do not have this experience and it is vital as part of their development."

Also, psychologist Roz Taylor, who works with disturbed children, said: "Teaching children how to behave in a nice family environment - the lynchpin of society - is one of the most important things they can learn.

"If their background is difficult, then giving them calm moments will make their behaviour better and will also help them to learn to the best of their ability." (ANI)
