School Description

Pupils very much enjoy attending Frank Barnes School. Inspirational deaf and hearing staff inspire pupils to believe they can achieve anything. Consequently, pupils become proud of their deaf identity and culture. Pupils feel that their life chances are greatly improved because of their time at this school. One typical comment from a parent or carer was, ‘This school has transformed my child’s life.’ Pupils take part in a wide range of activities, including sporting events, cultural visits and trips to the local shops. Pupils learn about important British values, such as tolerance, respect, and the difference between right and wrong. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary in class and around the school. It is a calm and orderly environment for everyone. Sometimes, pupils need extra help to manage their feelings. Staff help them to become calm again so that they can get back on with their lessons as soon as possible. Pupils have no concerns about bullying, and they feel safe. Pupils enjoy learning. They are taught to cooperate and help each other. For example, those who are new to learning British Sign Language (BSL) are well supported by moreadvanced pupils. This enables them to learn from each other, and to develop friendships.
