Next week is Deaf Awareness Week. Every week, 34 children in the UK are born deaf. Current data suggests that deaf children are likely to achieve at least one grade lower than their peers for each GCSE, despite deafness itself not being a learning disability. The National Deaf Children’s Society is a charity that supports deaf children and their families, and the Big Cake Bake is a fundraising event we at Hatch Ride (with your help J) would very much like to support.
The monies raised from the Big Cake Bake will go directly to the National Deaf Children’s Society
whose Vision is: a world without barriers for every deaf child;
Mission is: Together we overcome the social and educational barriers that hold deaf children back
Values are: We help families give the best possible support to their deaf child every step of the way; Deaf children and young people are at the heart of our work. We make sure their needs come first, and we help others do the same; We give expert unbiased support to help deaf children and their parents make informed choices about their lives; We work together with others to positively challenge unfairness.
For more information please have a look at their website: www.ndcs.org.uk
Some pupils and staff will be baking during the week, ready to sell on the school playground from 3:00pm on Friday 10th May. Please remember to bring some pennies with you when you pick up your child/ren on this day to help support this wonderful charity. If you would like to donate cakes to the sale, we would be hugely grateful for any contributions. Any donations (either home baked or shop bought) can be left at the school office throughout the day on Friday 10th May. Please remember NO NUTS. Also, if you are able to assist with baking on the morning of Friday 10th May, please email Mrs Hudson to advise her of your availability. firstname.lastname@example.org
