Cuts to affect 500 deaf children in Manchester...

Image result for St John’s Primary in Longsight .Education bosses have proposed closing two resource bases at St Andrew’s Primary, in Levenshulme, and St John’s Primary, in Longsight.  A charity says council plans to cut support for deaf and visually-impaired schoolchildren could impact almost 500 children across the city.

Education bosses hoping to save £410,000 have proposed closing two resource bases at St Andrew’s Primary in Levenshulme and St John’s Primary in Longsight .  The move would affect 15 hearing-impaired children who currently receive specialist services at the two centres.

But it is also expected to impact around 90 children who get a weekly visit from a sensory impairment worker.  And the National Deaf Children’s Society claims that the proposals could in fact reduce vital support for almost 500 deaf children across Manchester.
