Campaign for BSL in schools

Birmingham’s new Lord Mayor is campaigning for children at every one of the City’s 430 schools to learn British Sign Language.

Councillor Len Gregory said “This is a new recruitment drive. I want a BSL Champion in each year at every school to teach their friends”

He also said that councillors and senior council officials should also learn BSL and make the city more welcoming to Deaf people.

All now that is needed is for this to be actioned nationwide in order for the children of our schools to be taught British Sign Language.
