Staff and Contacts

We have Teachers of the Deaf (TOD), Deaf Instructors (DI) and Specialist Support Workers (SSW) who support our children. ToDs plan, teach and assess deaf pupils. Many of our deaf children follow a literacy and numeracy curriculum planned and delivered by a ToD. The plans are differentiated to meet the deaf children’s specific language and communication needs.

Deaf children who use BSL as their main mode of communication are supported by the DIs in small groups and in class. The DIs also have small group and 1:1 sessions for those children who use sign to develop their BSL skills.

SSWs work closely with ToDs in ToD led English and numeracy lessons and with class teachers and DIs in mainstream classes to ensure that the children receive the support they require to access all areas of the curriculum.
Our Deaf Instructor Julie also offers BSL classes for our parents, alongside lunch time sign clubs for mainstream children who would like to learn BSL.

We work closely with other specialists, such as the YAIS team who work with our children who have cochlear implants, and we seek guidance and advice from the SCIL Team for children who have additional needs alongside their deafness.

RP staff can be contacted using the school’s telephone number (01274) 639049.
