A spokesperson for Royal Cross School said: “We are delighted to share with parents, carers, friends and colleagues our intention to provide a specialist nursery at Royal Cross School for deaf/HI children from September 2019.
“We will consider assessment places for those children who may need additional support to enter a mainstream provision and our staff will support transition into these settings and any follow up outreach.
“We are at the early stages of setting up the provision and will be working closely with the Governing Body, SEND Services and the Local Authority to ensure that our provision is the very best that we can offer and that all statutory procedures and policies are in place.”
Royal Cross School was recently rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and aims to nurture the children to be confident communicators and learners.
