The Governing Body

Integrated Resource Unit

Our hearing impaired children receive specialist help from teachers of the deaf and sensory support assistants, mainly in class.  They actively liaise with all staff at Greystones Primary School to ensure total inclusion.  Many of the schools classrooms are equipped with hearing systems which are used to amplify and broadcast the teacher's voice or sound from the interactive whiteboard.  Click here or on the title above to visit their dedicated web pages of information.

School Council

The School Council is an elected body of pupils, which has considerable responsibilities. They are supported in their work by members of the school leadership team.
