Today over 100,000 children and adults use Makaton symbols and signs, either as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech.
We are very lucky to have two qualified Makaton trainers at Portesbery, Jo in our Post 16 Department and Kirsty in Chestnut class. They have teamed up Afreen in Grasshopper class (who is a very talented illustrator) to produce weekly drawings of common Makaton words and phrases.
These will be added to this photo gallery (and Facebook) every week during term-time.
You can learn more about Makaton and other strategies used to support our curriculum here.
