The school has a resource base for Hearing Impaired pupils. At present all pupils are supported within the mainstream classroom to enable them to access a broad and balanced curriculum alongside their peers. Most classrooms are fitted with carpet and curtains to make it acoustically friendly for the hearing impaired pupils. All pupils are offered the use of a FM Radio Aid system for use in the mainstream classroom to ensure they can receive direct input from their teacher’s voice. Where appropriate some of these pupils follow a personalised learning programme, and may receive pre and/or post tutorial sessions to ensure they understand the topics/coursework they are studying. They all receive technical and audiological back-up from a qualified Teacher of the Deaf.


We also work closely with any external agencies that we feel are relevant to individual children’s needs within our school. These may include: GP, School Nurse, Clinical Psychologist, Paediatrician, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Educational Psychologist, the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and Social Services.


• From the 1st September 2014 the ‘Halton Local Offer’ is available at www.localoffer.haltonchildrenstrust.co.uk/.

The purpose of the local offer is to enable parents and young people to see more clearly what services are available in their area and how to access them.  It includes provision from birth to 25, across education, health and social care.
