Speech, Language & Communication Information

Speech, language and communication is an important part of a child's life throughout their education.

Mrs Keeble is the Language Lead for the school, which means she is the 'go to' person for any parents or carers who have any concerns or questions about their child's Speech, Language and Communication development, you will find her in Elm Class. If you would like to get in contact with Mrs Keeble for advice, please email the school office.

This page will be updated with information and posters about any tips to support your child's Speech, Language and Communication development, as well as what we are doing in School to support these areas. There will also be information on the newsletter and displays around the school for parents and carers to look at.
