Hearing impaired students come to the Centre each morning before the start of school to check that their hearing aids, cochlear implants and radio aid systems are working properly.
We also run a weekly spelling and reading programme in these morning tutorial sessions when students are encouraged to develop their vocabulary and awareness of current affairs. If necessary, pre-tutoring of lessons, concepts and vocabulary also takes place.
Once or twice a week the Speech and Language Therapist meets with individual students to develop their speech and communication skills.
Students then attend a five minute tutorial session with their hearing peers. Students go to mainstream lessons or are withdrawn for specialist teaching in the Centre, according to their individual needs.
After school routine comprises of 20 minutes one to one individual support with a focus on Individual Education Plan targets and the reinforcement of key concepts.
An after-school Home Learning Club is run within the Centre, staffed by the Team. Students can also attend a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, such as sport or drama clubs.
