British Sign Language and Braille to be taught in all schools throughout the UK

I am thirteen years of age and am campaigning for a subject that is rather close to my heart. Recently I befriended a girl whom I found out is fluent in BSL due to the fact her best friend is deaf. I decided to learn some online, and my friends and I became very interested in the language, realising just how important it is. I may have only encountered a few deaf people throughout my travels, but they are humane and deserve to engage in conversation with others as freely as those who can hear.
I also want to point out braille. We may not know it, but braille is on medicine packets, public doors, and more. So why not in schools?
Please, I only ask for you to take a moment of your time to sign this petition. These languages are interesting and a part of opening doors for the future.
Thank you.
