At RSDD, Pupils are considered to have complex special needs in addition to deafness if: They have a greater difficulty learning than others of the same age, or require additional resources or adaptations to be made to the physical environment to facilitate inclusive learning.
All students at RSDD have a Statement of Need or an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP). This identifies the areas of student’s needs, establishes outcomes and highlights the provision needed in order for the students to successfully achieve those outcomes.
