We are parents of Deaf children who attend Townfield Primary School.  We are asking for your support to keep the Deaf Base open at Townfield  Primary School. 

The base has been at the heart of the school for 50 years and new management has decided that Deaf childrens lives no longer matter and they want to close the Deaf Base.

Deaf children struggle at every stage of their education.  Every child deserves the chance to shine at school, and deaf children are no exception.”

Ten dedicated teaching units for deaf children in schools are being closed every year.  We don't want the Base at Townfield to be another one.

In the base these children get an opportunity to be around their deaf peers and to learn about their own deaf identity.  It helps them to build their confidence and makes them more resilient to help them with the inevitable challenges they will be faced with in the future.

If the base closes these children will be sent to other schools with no deaf resources and more importantly seperated from their deaf friends.  For some of these children their only form of communication is sign language and they may be placed in a school with inadequate support unable to communicate with the other children or even their teachers.  They will become isolated and withdrawn.

Please help us save the base and save the future for these children and many more that could attend the base in the future.

If  you would like to contact us please email us at Peytonluca22@gmail.com
