International Engagement

As part of the Royal Blind School’s commitment to improving the education of visually impaired pupils, we have engaged with a number of international projects that allow us to share our knowledge with and learn from our partners in Europe and the rest of the world.



A report funded by Erasmus+ and contributed to by the Royal Blind School is published. Parents, carers, family support organisations and professionals from across Europe have collaborated to create the report, The Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis and Education Project (2014 - 2017) - Aspects of Learning for Individuals with the Juvenile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (JNCL) or the CLN 3 Disease, also known as Batten’s disease. Download the report here.
