Huge thanks to our fantastic Speech and Language team and BSL tutors Ms Iliffe and Ms Atkinson who have worked so hard to facilitate a really successful BSL Awareness week. It is absolutely brilliant that we have now seen an MP Dawn Butler use sign language for the first time in the House of Commons….what a break through. Read about it on the BBC.
Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed creating some imaginative posters, which demonstrate their enthusiasm for promoting British Sign Language.
We now look forward to encouraging our Secondary students to write to their own MPs, asking that British Sign Language be recognised as an official mandatory language in British schools.
