Deaf and hearing communities
We believe that the ability to interact confidently with all cultures and communities will enrich the lives of our children and enable them to develop strong lifelong identities.
We have strong links with the Deaf community and work closely with the National Deaf Children’s Society, the British Deaf Association and the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust.
Each year, during Deaf Festival Week, we organise activities including visits from members of the Deaf community, from Deaf organisations and from other schools for Deaf children. Our own children visit mainstream schools to provide Deaf Awareness sessions and, where appropriate, some children are supported to access some of their learning in a mainstream school environment.
