The HI unit at Kings Oak Primary has just been acoustically refurbished to create an excellent learning environment for our HI pupils.

Our School

HI Provision

HI (Hearing Impaired) Provision


Children have 1:1 sessions and group sessions in the HI Provision including:

  • Speech and Language therapy (SaLT) Sessions.

  • Specialist speech, language, reading and vocabulary lessons.


Staff also check the hearing equipment that the children use.

Children are also supported in mainstream classes by the educational communicators.


Some recent sessions include:

  • Cochlear Implant Training

  • Colourful Semantics lingustic Training


  • We hold activites for deaf pre-school and deaf secondary pupils.

  • This year we were lucky enough to have a visit from the NDCS 'listening bus'.


Below are pictures of some of the rooms in HI and the display board that are in the unit and around the school.

Here's some of the equipment we use on a day to day basis.


This is used to test the children's hearing aids and their batteries.


The phonak radio devices help pupils to hear their teachers or educational communicators more clearly.
