Deaf pupils in England struggle at every stage of school, report finds

The National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) analysed government data and found that 44% of deaf pupils achieve two A-levels or equivalent, compared with 63% of hearing pupils. The Guardian reports.

Fewer than three-quarters of them (73%) will gain five GCSEs or equivalent by the age of 19, compared with 88% of hearing pupils. If English and maths are included, that figure goes down to just over half (52%) of deaf pupils and three-quarters (76%) of their hearing classmates.

“Deaf children arrive at school with amazing potential only to begin a lifetime of being left behind,” said Susan Daniels, the chief executive of NDCS. “While some of them are achieving incredible results and going on to their dream jobs, these results show that many more are being completely failed by the system on which they rely.”

The attainment gap between deaf children and hearing children is evident before pupils start secondary school at the age of 11. Fewer than half (43%) reach the expected standard for reading, writing and maths at key stage 2 (KS2) at the end of primary school, compared with three-quarters (74%) of other children.

You should make sure your health care provider knows that you had a subtotal mastectomy so you can determine which, if any, preventative and screening measures (like mammograms) you should undertake. If you have a family history of breast cancer and/or have genetic testing suggesting you’re at greater risk, that may affect your surgical planning, so be sure to discuss it with your surgeon..

    So, should you miss a pill, take that pill as soon as you remember.

    Should you miss two, same deal. Should you miss
    three, you’ll want to replace them one per each of the next three days with your scheduled pill, but it’s generally agreed

  32. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any
    methods to prevent hackers?

  33. You’re so interesting! I do not believe I’ve

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

  35. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  36. Link exchange is nothing else however it is just placing the other person’s blog link on your page at proper place and other person will also
    do same in favor of you.

    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest site and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.

  45. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
    to be actually something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  46. Everything composed was actually very logical. However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added something that makes
    people want more? I mean Deaf pupils in England struggle at every stage of school, report finds – Schools Improvement Net is
    a little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s home page
    and see how they write post headlines to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers
    excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion,
    it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  47. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Very useful info particularly the last part 🙂 I care for such information much.
    I was seeking this certain information for a long time.
    Thank you and best of luck.

  48. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail
    on the head. The problem is something that not
    enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I
    stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  49. I blog frequently and I seriously thank you for your content.
