Quality Standards: Resource Provisions for Deaf Children and Young People in Mainstream Schools
This booklet sets out standards for the operation of resource provisions for deaf children and young people in primary and secondary schools throughout the UK. Its purpose is to improve outcomes for deaf pupils by providing a framework which:
- helps schools evaluate the effectiveness of the education provision made for deaf children and young people
- informs the development of school policy and plans
- supports the development and review of service level agreements between the local authority or education and library board and the school hosting the resource provision
- promotes good practice and the effective and efficient use of resources.
We have also produced a self-evaluation tool which we hope will be helpful to heads of resource provisions.
