Andrew Broughton was the SIS Head of Service for many years before he sadly passed away in 2010. Andrew was a passionate advocate of the needs of all hearing impaired children being met effectively, whatever their setting or additional needs. This award recognises some of the very special challenges this group of hearing impaired children face and our pride in their achievements.
Ben has a moderate hearing loss and wears two post-aural hearing aids. He started in Reception at the Bridge, in September , and has settled really well despite a number of personal difficulties. He is striving to communicate and his teachers say that he is working really hard in school. He is always happy and enjoying making friends and engaging in his learning. Mum is rightly very proud of him!
