Signalong is sign-supported communication for people with learning difficulties.
Pen-y-Cwm has been using this signing system since summer term 2013.
All staff have been trained over the last few years and when new staff arrive at the school they are enrolled on the course during their first term.
We also offer at a nominal cost the training for parents to access.
Two signs of the week are shown to everyone in the school with the help of two signing peers every week.
Twice a week Signalong lunch time club meets where we learn songs to sign and lots of new vocabulary through fun and games.
The whole school uses Signalong during assemblies and concerts.
