HI Provision

Middlewich Primary School is proud to have a resource base, catering to the specific needs of deaf children.

Our hearing-impaired children spend most of the day learning with their peers within their mainstream class. However, to ensure their individual and specific needs are met, they also receive daily teaching from trained teachers of the deaf supported by specialist teaching assistants.This ensures they develop the language skills essential for access to the curriculum. All staff within the unit and some throughout the school hold British Sign Language (BSL) qualifications, which can be used to aid communication where necessary. Respect and understanding of deaf children is developed through whole school involvement in activities such as and ‘Sign2Sing’ and ‘Deaf Awareness Week’.

Signing Choir

At Middlewich Primary School we are particularly proud of our school’s signing choir. The choir, which is made up of approximately 45 members, meets weekly to learn basic British Sign Language skills. Children are also taught basic deaf awareness skills and are encouraged to discuss issues around deafness. During 2014, we took part in many local community events including Middlewich FAB festival and the Christmas Community service at St Michael’s Church. We were also very fortunate to be invited to perform at Gawsworth Hall and the Cheshire show.  

Sign to Sing

This year the whole school took part in the annual sign to sing event, to raise money for the charity Sign Health. KS1 and KS2 performed 'As One' together in the main hall. The children thoroughly enjoyed practicing and performing the song. The event was very successful, all the children should be very proud of their achievements! See us in action below.
