Hearing Impairment Service (SenCom)

How does the Hearing Impairment Service (SenCom) Help?
The Hearing Impairment Service (HIS) aims to support the successful inclusion of children and young people with hearing impairment (HI) and those with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) in Trinity Fields school. We work closely in partnership with children and young people with HI, parents, Audiology, school staff, and other professionals at Trinity Fields school to meet their individual HI needs.

Hearing Impairment
Following a referral and assessment, the HI service can provide a range of services including direct support strategies and recommendations to ensure that the child is given the opportunity to develop their listening skills and use their hearing at its optimum in a deaf friendly environment. With parental permission, listening equipment such as hearing aids can be checked and trouble-shooting carried out.

Deaf Awareness
Direct support, intervention and advice in acoustics, awareness of listening needs, access to learning and socialising for children and young people with HI to enable the children to make the most of their school day.

Multi-sensory Impairment
Children and young people with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) have a combination of hearing and vision loss. Advice and guidance is made available to parents and school regarding beneficial strategies, establishing appropriate programmes and monitoring the development.

Deaf Awareness Training
Training is available to school staff who work with children and young people with HI. This can be provided virtually, in person with individual staff or with groups of staff. See contact details below. The training can be tailored for the specific pupils and their equipment and hearing loss.

The Hearing Impairment Service welcomes enquiries from anyone with concerns or questions regarding hearing difficulties and associated equipment.

Advice can be obtained by contacting the service:
