Makaton Training

Fifteen Staff within school recently completed the Level 1 Makaton training.


This training included:

  • A practical session on communicating together
  • An overview of the Makaton language programme
  • Tips for effective signing
  • An understanding of Makaton's place in the signing World
  • Makaton signs and symbols
  • Makaton core vocabulary


 All staff really enjoyed the training and we are now using some Makaton within school.
