Here in the Enhanced Resource Facility we pride ourselves in delivering a high standard of support for all our pupils, many of whom have additional needs as well as their deafness.
We use a range of communication approaches to suit the needs of each child. All our staff are experienced in working with deaf children and have a wide variety of skills including British Sign Language up to level 2 / 3 and Communication Support Worker (CSW) qualifications. We also have excellent links with our neighbouring ERF schools.
Our weekly Deaf Club is a favourite with all the children. This is an opportunity for them to get together as a small group and chat, play and learn about issues which are important to them as deaf citizens in the community. We follow a Deaf Studies Curriculum which ensures a breadth of learning across the areas of Personal and Social development & Emotional Literacy; Communication; Community & Culture; Deaf History: Technology and Identity.
We learn about emotions. We visit the Listening Bus. We learn as we play together.
We welcome anyone who would like to come and take a look at our facility. Please read our Core Offer Statement which presents a clear summary of what we provide. If you wish to visit, please contact the school office via the details on this site.
