Whole school procedures

The senior leadership team should ensure that:

  • All staff are committed to supporting hearing impairment in school.

  • Risk assessments are completed when required, for example for access to the building, school trips etc.

  • School encourages and supports a team approach to support hearing impairment. In particular: 

    • Staff are given encouragement and opportunities to discuss concerns, problem solve and provide support both practically and emotionally to each other

    • There are planned opportunities for key staff to share good practice with staff from other schools

    • Senior staff actively promote and facilitate these networking and mentoring opportunities

  • Key staff have attended initial Deaf AwarenessTraining delivered by a qualified Teacher of the Deaf.  Other training is available from the HI service and other providers, such as the NDCS.

  • Consideration is given to exam arrangements, for example pupils may need access to a live voice with visual access to lip reading cues when information is required to be listened to.
