Support for deaf pupils

Today, a report from the National Deaf Children’s Society that suggests deaf pupils are struggling at every stage of their education with fewer than half leaving school with two A levels.

A Department for Education spokesperson said:

The percentage of pupils with a hearing impairment achieving a grade 4 or above in GCSE English and mathematics has increased in recent years.

We want to support all pupils to fulfil their potential in school however, and we know there is more to do to support those with additional needs, which is why we have increased high needs funding from £5 billion in 2013 to £6.3 billion this year.
