Language Support Centre
We have the Language Support Centre for Developmental Language Disorder (previously known as Specific Language Impairment) in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 based within our school.
Places within the Support Centre are allocated by the Local Authority’s Admissions Panel. Children can be referred to the Admissions Panel by their child's Speech and Language Therapist and Educational Psychologist.
There are 21 places across the school in this provision.
Children placed in this provision are predominantly based within the mainstream classroom alongside Specialist Teaching Assistants. They are withdrawn as necessary, to be supported by a Specialist Teacher, a Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist and skilled Teaching Assistants in order to deliver individualised programmes.
All staff have additional training in this field. We are noted as having exemplary practice in this specialism.
