Specialist provision for deaf children
Nestled in the heart of our highly inclusive school, the Resourced Provision has places for twelve children from Nursery to Year 6. It combines the advantage of a mainstream education with highly specialised support and intervention for deaf children. Our approach to communication and supporting children is child centred. Communication preferences for each child are discussed and reviewed with parents and staff. We are able to provide a broad range of communication support. This is appropriate for children who are oral/aural, those who use British Sign Language and for children who use a combination of both. In line with this, every child in the Deaf Provision has a Communication Profile detailing their current communication methods and best practice for working with the child.

We can offer:
• Enthusiastic, responsive children who are ready to learn.
• A strong, supportive EYFS team.
• A fantastic learning environment, including amazing outdoor provision.
• Quality professional development and staff training, including British Sign Language training.
• Excellent support and guidance from senior and middle leaders.
• A genuinely inclusive school. We have a provision for Hearing Impaired and Deaf children where children are fully integrated into mainstream classes with specialist support provided by Teachers of the Deaf and Communicators.
• A positive and caring culture.
