What do our Pupils Say?
"I find the support really helpful because I can catch up with work I have missed. I feel that I am treated as an individual."
"I don’t feel embarrassed about being deaf, I feel confident. I know I will get the help I need from the teachers and LSA’s. The radio aid helps me hear the teacher’s voice much better."
"I know I can always come to the Unit if I have any problems I want to talk through. I like the fact that I have deaf as well as hearing friends at school."
"I'm fine about my deafness – it’s cool. The radio aid makes it easier for me to hear in class."
"I do better work when I have support in a lesson because the Unit staff really encourage me."
A Final Word
From a pupil who has recently arrived...
"I have settled in perfectly well. I find the support really useful because you help me when I don’t understand. I am happy to be here because I have made loads of friends."
...to a pupil who has recently left:
"I came to a school where people cared about me. Students at Cove know what it’s like to have hearing impaired pupils around them. I started to believe in myself. Now nothing can hold me back."
