The aim of the Resource Base is to provide support for pupils with hearing impairment to enable them to integrate and participate, as fully as possible, in all aspects of life at Sweyne Park School. Pupils will have either a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SSEN) or an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
Pupils are part of an inclusive provision at Sweyne Park, with specialist support from a team of Teachers of the Deaf, a Specialist Tutor, Educational Communicators and Specialist Learning Support Assistants.
Pupils also benefit from tutorials in the sound treated environment of the Resource Base for pre and post tutoring, in order to facilitate access to the mainstream curriculum and to focus on the educational objectives in either their SSEN or EHCP. As appropriate, this may also include targets from, for example, our visiting speech and language therapist or visiting sign language instructor. Mentoring, audiological monitoring of hearing aids, cochlear implants and radio aids also form part of this provision.
Pupils in the Resource Base make outstanding progress
