Deaf Learning Base
Percy Shurmer Deaf Learning Base caters for children who have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) due to significant hearing loss with a subsequent language delay. The purpose of the Deaf Learning Base is to provide a team of specialist staff, equipment, resources and teaching methods/strategies that will support the pupils ability to acquire language, enabling them to communicate effectively. We incorporate a variety of communication methods to ensure that the student has full access to the National Curriculum.
Our team also offer a specialist teaching service supporting children and young people with a hearing loss, from birth to 25 years. They support children and young people in mainstream schools, special schools, early years settings, schools, colleges and homes.
