Studies Curriculum

for Primary & Secondary Schools

 
 

History

In April 2001, Deaf Instructors from Frank Barnes, Oaklodge, Blanche Nevile and Thomas Tallis Schools came together forming the Deaf Studies Working Group.

This group then evolved into the National Deaf Studies Working Group when more Deaf Instructors from Hamilton Lodge, Royal School for the Deaf Derby and Elmfield Schools joined.

The group discussed the need for a Deaf Studies Curriculum to be used in all Deaf Schools, Units and Services.

On Thursday 26th March 2009, the National Deaf Studies Curriculum was published and launched at Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children.
