SchoolDoncaster School for the Deaf - An education that is right for your child. Doncaster School for the Deaf was founded in 1829, which makes us one of the oldest deaf schools in the UK and we are proud of our long history and achievements. We provide a pupil-centered approach to education from the earliest years up to the age of 19. All pupils have an Education and Health Care Plan, which ensures that we know exactly what we need to do to meet their special educational needs. Although we are based in Doncaster, we are a national resource and pupils come to us via local authorities from all over the UK. We offer a safe and nurturing environment in which children can learn and communicate effectively to achieve their goals.

The experience of pupils stimulates a sense of wonder at the beauty of the world around them. In Key Stage 1 and 2 Geography helps children develop an informed concern about the quality of the environment and the future of the human habitat and enhance their sense of responsibility for the care of the Earth and its people. Our geography visits extend classroom learning. Pupils learn about the physical and human features of their own environment. We encourage children to ask questions and develop their geographical enquiry skills. In Key Stage 1, history is about the lives and lifestyles of familiar people in the recent past and about famous people and events in the more distant past, including those from British history. In Key Stage 2, history is about people and important events and developments from recent and more distant times in the locality, in Britain and in other parts of the world.
