Welcome to our Deaf ARP Page
At Eastbury Primary School our approach is centred around the child and their need. We value an individualised education to ensure that all their needs are met.
Parents and carers play a large role in the ARP and are regularly consulted on decisions about their child’s education. Parents and children are encouraged to be actively involved with setting targets, pupil passports and, annual reviews that take place yearly for children over the age of five and every six months for younger children. We also collaborate closely with all professionals involved in your child’s life, depending on their needs. This includes, but is not limited to: speech and language therapist, audiologist, cochlear implant team, hospital Teacher of the Deaf (ToD), school nurse, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists.
There are also strong links with all other deaf ARPs in the borough to share good practice, plan visits and trips, and ensure smooth transition from Primary to Secondary school. This is achieved through termly meetings of the leaders of the ARPs from Five Elms Primary School and Eastbury Community School.
