Further information and guidance about deaf children, parenting and organisations that offer support and advice are listed on this page.
To enable children to reach their full potential, the child, parent(s) and the school must form a real partnership. The Home-School Agreement formally recognises this. It is based on mutual trust and openness and clarifies the roles of parent, child and school. It is a voluntary agreement but we encourage parents to sign it. A copy of the agreement can be found here.
National Deaf Children’s Society -The NDCS has launched a Stolen Futures Campaign to stop these cuts and have launched a film including Frank Barnes’ Pupils, which you can watch here. The NDCS have also made another video called ‘Kids will be kids’, which also features Frank Barnes Pupils
