You are here: Deaf Resource - Resource Base for Deaf Children​ – Welcome

Castleford Academy is home to the Resource Base of the Deaf​ which is a Wakefield Council provision that provides access to the curriculum for deaf pupils.

Our aim is to ensure that our pupils are fully included in academy life, educationally, socially and emotionally thus ensuring they leave secondary education as confident and independent young adults.

Our Ethos

“To ensure every deaf child reaches their maximum social and academic potential”

Our Philosophy

“We recognise and celebrate the potential of our deaf sign bilingual children. We hold a strong commitment to providing a child centred approach to develop learning.”
