Special Education Needs
Royal School for the Deaf Derby is a child centred day and residential school which provides deaf children with access to language (English and BSL), literacy, numeracy and all curriculum areas. It promotes a strong sense of identity and through its 24 hour curriculum prepares young people for adult life. There is an evolving BSL curriculum which takes account of CACDP requirements. The school follows the National Curriculum including the Literacy and Numeracy Strategies, science and ICT initiatives, SATs, Entry Level, GCSE and a range of other external assessments. The school has a fully developed ICT network, which is used to enhance other curriculum areas. All pupils have their own email address. We have a systematic and comprehensive Deaf Studies curriculum and two speech and language therapists, who are experienced in working with deaf children, have regular sessions with all children. The educational audiologist is based in a purpose built suite and there is full time nurse based in a well equipped Health Centre Pupils are encouraged to maximise their residual hearing through the use of analogue and digital hearing aids and cochlear implants. Well qualified deaf and hearing staff work in all departments. Information is made available for staff and parents in BSL and English. Pupils in residence are encouraged to participate in deaf and hearing community activities. We have very good value added which places us in the top 5 per cent of schools nationally. In 2005 Ofsted commented: 'A very effective school...good value for money...the pupils make very good progress.'
