Our Team Members

Debra K


Debra established the School of Sign Language back in 2006, following her own personal experiences of being hard of hearing she was motivated to break down the barriers between Deaf and hearing communities. A fully qualified registered sign language interpreter with over 10 years experience of working in the deaf/education sector, she has assembled a multi-disciplinary team of Deaf and hearing people who have built the critical mass of training packages, services, resources and support. This team comprises educationalists, BSL interpreters, designers and IT experts who have developed the interactive software package, Primary Sign that will allow schools to deliver their own sign language classes.



Emma has over 10 years of working both in the Deaf community and education sector. With a degree in education and BSL level 3 she has a wealth of experience in a diverse range of settings. She is motivated by the need to promote communication within the education sector and has worked closely with schools in introducing BSL onto the curriculum through to Key stage 4 as a GCSE option choice. She is the educationalist behind Primary Sign, understanding the benefits of all children learning sign language; Emma makes learning experiences fun, interactive and accessible.



Using her degree in fine art, Kelly is the creative driving force behind the characters of Primary Sign. Kelly is responsible for all the illustrations and animations of the characters. She has dedicated her time to this project and sees it as an opportunity to utilise her skills and creativity, combined with the team will make a real difference in our children’s futures.



Chloe studied Uniformed Public Services at college and is BSL Level 3. Chloe has worked alongside tutors delivering BSL and Deaf Awareness courses in various educational settings. Her role of Communication Support Worker CSW within secondary and primary schools has supported communication and learning between the deaf tutors and hearing students. She thoroughly enjoys this role and continues to develop her excellent signing skills which will enable her to achieve her goal of becoming a qualified BSL interpreter.



With a natural ability to make her teaching fun and interactive, Sofia also possesses the ability to meet her students learning styles and needs. As a deaf BSL trainee tutor she has experience of delivering tailor-made training to a number of key sectors including: Education sector (primary and secondary), Private sector (retail, hotel and leisure) and Public sector (Health Authorities, Local Authorities, Social Service Departments. Sofia has introduced her primary schools to Primary Sign, she has thoroughly enjoyed using this resource and sharing this experience with the children and teachers.
