Within this area, you can find information about the care provision and additional support your child will receive that complements their learning at the Academy. Whether you are a parent or carer of one of our students, or a new visitor to the Academy site, I hope you will find our website informative and helpful.
There are over 30 members of staff in the Academy’s Care Team in a variety of roles from Student Care Officers to Key Workers and also more specialist staff such as Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Staff to student ratio depends on individual needs but we have a level of support in place which is much higher than standard regulations. Here on the site you will find out how our care and specialist staff work with your child and support them in achieving their full potential and individual levels of independence as a young deaf person.
Our website is designed to give you taste of what life is like here at the Deaf Academy. To fully appreciate the bespoke level of care and educational support available, please do visit us. If you have any questions, please use the Contact Us and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Karen Burgess, Head of Care
