Our Specialist Provision for the Deaf (SPD) is a purpose built unit within the school comprised of one main classroom with an adjoining specialist speech and language therapy room. Our provision provides a stimulating environment for up to 6 children with widely varying levels of hearing. We are staffed by two Teachers of the Deaf and a team of British Sign Language (BSL) and Signed Supported English (SSE) trained Communication Support Workers. Our aim is to provide our deaf pupils with the opportunity to reach their full potential during the exciting years of primary education. We absolutely believe that students who are deaf can achieve as well their hearing peers. We are committed to their accessing of the curriculum and seamless inclusion in the school community.
British Sign Language for the letter Y, the sign for The Yew - our classroom in the specialist provision.
We are also accredited to deliver BSL Level 1 training with Signature and run a weekly sign club for parents, staff and pupils.
