In partnership with the LA the school has, since 2003, offered special provision for up to 16 Deaf and Partially Hearing pupils. The children are fully integrated into the mainstream classes but receive specialist learning support from Teachers of the Deaf and Teaching Assistants plus speech therapy within school. The mainstream setting is most suitable for chidren who are auditory aural learners. We are not a BSL signing school provision. Culloden Primary School specialises in Signing Provision.

Visits are arranged for pupils to meet their new form tutors and fellow class mates in their new school.
