Outwoods Primary School

Outwoods Umbrella Project



The Neurodiversity Umbrella Project is an uplifting visual representation of all the different minds we have here in the UK.  Every Umbrella Project installation helps to raise awareness and understanding of neurodiversity.


Thousands of colourful umbrellas are strung together over public spaces, in schools, and in company buildings around the nation. Each display is designed 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. We are changing the perception of neurodiverse/neurodivergent people and celebrating all the many strengths that come from thinking differently. 


As a school we are passionate about providing the best for all pupils and the project will enhance the skills and strategies used in school to support the different needs that neurodiversity presents.  We would like to say a huge thank you to ‘Rainbow Waste’ for the donation so that we can join in the Umbrella Project and have the resources and training that the project offers.
