The request was successful.

Dear Welsh Assembly Government/Llywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru,

How many children are currently registered as deaf or hearing impaired in Wales? How many of these children attend mainstream schools? How many of these children attend schools for the deaf?

How many schools for the deaf and hearing impaired are there in Wales and where are they located?

Yours faithfully,

Kathryn Benbow

Dear Kathryn,
We have published figures on children with special educational needs
including those with hearing impairment (Please note: 'Deaf' is not a
separate category) and I have attached an excel file that gives the latest
figures for Wales.

Tables 8.5 and 8.7 will be the most useful: 8.5 giving you those children
who have statements from the local authority, of special educational
needs; and 8.7 showing those whose special needs have been identified by
the school.

As you will see from the figures the majority are in mainstream schools.
Very few are in Special schools, and the numbers so small that there are
none that could be classified as solely 'Deaf schools', which I hope
answers your question.
