Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Support provided in school:

We use visual timetables when needed to support children to understand what will happen and when.
We provide areas with reduced distractions and low stimulus- breakout rooms and quiet areas to enable pupils to concentrate
We offer additional support in class, during break and lunch time when appropriate.
We have a variety of resources available to use, depending on a child’s sensory difficulties.
Time is spent with children helping them to identify situations that cause anxiety and finding ways to relieve that anxiety.
We run small group speech and language sessions.
We access the expertise and advice of the local authority Speech, Language and Social Communication team.
