Sign Language Club Began 2016

Sign Language After-school Club began following the Deaf Not Stupid campaign being promoted by Rachel Shenton (actress and ambassador for the National Deaf Children's Society ) and

Chris Overton (former pupil, actor and producer). They were raising money to  make a film, ‘The Silent Child’ in order to raise awareness of problems for deaf children and adults. Filming began in January 2017 and since then the film has gained widespread acclaim at Film Festivals. More here…

This after-school club is taught by

Mrs Marvin, a parent who uses sign language in her work. Photos, below, are of the Year 6 group (autumn term) displaying their skills during assembly and the ‘Merry Christmas’ video.
