Mildmay Junior School

with a Resource Base for Hearing Impaired Children

“Excelling Through Enjoyment”


Who we are

Our Enhanced Provision for deaf children comprises deaf friendly teaching spaces, resources and specialist teaching and support staff.


We are part of the mainstream school and it is our ultimate aim that deaf children work within their class, alongside their hearing peers as much as possible.  Through personalised approaches to learning, we strive to close  learning, attainment or social and emotional gaps, to enable them to do so.  

What we offer

In line with the NDCS’ ‘Quality Standards’ (2015) we believe it is our responsibility to ensure that all the children make ‘good educational progress and reduce or close any attainment gap that was existing between them and their peers on entry to the school’ (NDCS, 2015).  As such we offer a variety of support designed to meet the individual needs of each child including:


· Small group specialist teaching for English and maths by teachers of the deaf.

· In-class communication support.

· Small group and one to one teaching including opportunities for reverse inclusion.

· Pre and post teaching for English, maths and science.

· Personalised learning programmes aimed to supplement English and / or maths curriculum.


The well-being of our deaf learners is at the core of everything we do.  We not only monitor the children's well-being on a daily basis but we also actively consider this whilst planning long term provision as well-being underpins any and all progress they make. 

Working with parents

We believe it is important to work with parents and as such encourage regular communication either via the home-school book, email or telephone.  As well as annual reviews and parent evenings we also hold termly meetings for parents to meet collectively with resource base staff to discuss pertinent issues such as transition.
