This resource was previously called 'Supporting the achievement of deaf children in primary school'.

This resource is for anyone who is working with deaf children in a primary school. It aims is to help your school narrow any attainment gap that exists on entry to school between deaf and other children. It should help school staff:

  • understand the needs of deaf children
  • make sure the environment is suitable for deaf children’s needs
  • ensure the necessary support and learning strategies are in place so that lessons are fully accessible - make sure any hearing technology used is working to its maximum potential
  • enable deaf children to feel fully included in all areas of their school life
  • know where to go for advice.
