What is Makaton?

Makaton is a language programme that uses symbols, signs and speech to enable all people to communicate.

It enables and supports the development of essential communication skills such as;

-Listening and attention




-Organisation of language and expression


How do we use Makaton at Varna?

At Varna Community Primary School, we encourage all children to use Makaton as a form of communication.

Every time the register is taken the children use the Makaton signs for good morning and good afternoon.

We also encourage the children to express how they are feeling using Makaton signs. This allows us to have a form of communication with all children regardless of their communication skills.

As a school, we are aiming to increase the number of Makaton signs we know by learning 2 new signs and symbols every week.
