Icknield High School Deaf Resource Provision


Children have a place within the resourced provision if they have:
  • an education, health and care plan (EHCP)
  • a severe to profound bilateral hearing loss
  • associated language and communication difficulties

Their placement within the provision is organised and maintained by Luton Council.

The Hearing Support department provides:

  • education communicators to support students within their mainstream classes
  • BSL tuition with a deaf tutor
  • speech and language therapy sessions with a Magic Words therapist

The aims of the provision are to help students:

  • integrate within the mainstream environment
  • achieve academically
  • thrive socially

Education communicators are qualified to a minimum of BSL level 2, with many being qualified and signing at a higher level. This ensures that sign support can be provided across the entire curriculum regardless of subject.

Students select their GCSE options at the end of year 8 and begin the teaching of them in year 9. This gives students 3 years to cover content and prepare for formal examinations in year 11.
