School Description

Pupils who attend Elmfield School for Deaf Children gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be deaf. For many, prior to starting at Elmfield, their experience of this has been disjointed and limited. Staff support them to find their deaf identify. Pupils feel more positive about what they have to offer. Pupils value the opportunities and relationships that staff provide. They feel safe and trust that they can make mistakes, take risks and interact fully with those around them. Staff support pupils as they grapple with the bi-lingual nature of successful communication using spoken English and British Sign Language (BSL). Staff encourage them to use this new ‘voice’ to express their views and opinions. It helps prepare pupils well for their next steps. Expectations of pupils are high. Pupils respond positively to this and behave well because of the strong relationships staff have with them. The care and nurture from adults is clear. Many parents agree with one parent commenting that their child’s most ‘wonderful and unforgettable moments’ have been at Elmfield.
