WORKING WITH SCHOOLS - RAISING DEAF AWARENESS

RAISING DEAF AWARENESS THROUGH BOOKS 

 

Our charity gives away FREE Deaf Awareness Books to school children in Hampshire, Surrey, London* and Berkshire.


We simply arrive at your school and take over a hall for the day.  We have a display of all the Deaf Awareness Books that we have and ask you to invite each classroom to visit the hall.  Once they arrive, we ask them to listen to our speakers to describe each book.  Once we have described the books we invite 5-6 children at a time, to browse through these books and make their choice. Usually, each class takes 20 minutes to browse and we sometimes find we have time for any Questions that the children may have.


All the books will be packed into an individual bag for each child and distributed by the end of the school day.  This means that the child will go home on that day with their chosen book.


There is no COST involved to your school.  Just a sharing of a passion for books and the support to enable our charity to raise Deaf Awareness.


Bookings are now being taken for October 2017 onwards.


Please book us in to visit your school with Cathy Still, contact@cssef.org or call 07931 310 430.


SCHOOL REQUEST FOR DEAF AWARENESS RESOURCES?


We are passionate about schools having the resources that they need to raise Deaf Awareness.  As teachers, you are the professionals that know what resources will work for your school and what resources won't work.  As a charity, we want to work with you to help you build your resources. The great news is that we have allocated a budget for each school in Hampshire, Berkshire, and Surrey to spend on resources.  These resources are given to your school for FREE.   

It really is quite simple. Send an email to Cathy Still, via email on wishes@cssef.org and request a DEAF AWARENESS RESOURCES FORM.  Each resource is listed and priced.    In addition to our Resources List, we will send a short form for your school to fill in to show our charity how these resources will be used.  


We really would love to raise Deaf Awareness in our community and in schools.  Our charity is here to help you raise awareness as much as you can.   We have attached a photo of a few of the resources that we have supplied to schools locally.


BSL AFTER SCHOOL CLUB


Would your school like to have a British Sign Language After School Club?

We can provide this service, fully funded by our charity, to your school.

We arrange the booking of company that attends to teach BSL.

The BSL Teacher has a DBS.


Club size is up to maximum capacity of 12 children, minimum of 6 and from Year 3 onwards to Year 6. We welcome teachers and/or learning support assistants to attend. 

Your school does not need to have a deaf child to have a BSL After School Club. 

The Club lasts for one Term.  The Club is available for all three Terms of the School year.


Your school will need to apply for a Wishes Application Form to receive the club to be funded.


Book your school in now from January 2018.  Please email Karen Jackson, karenjackson@cssef.org or call 07931310430.


We work with Sign for Thoughts to deliver the BSL After School Club.
