Speech and Language

At Carbeile Junior School we provide specialised speech and language support for pupils who require intervention. Our weekly interventions are provided to support the individual needs of each child. Each child has termly assessments to ensure their provision is appropriate for their needs and to ensure progress is made over time.

Our aim is to support and develop skills that currently prevent children’s speech and language development or cause any delays to learning. We work to:

  • Improve working memory,
  • Develop verbal and non-verbal communication,
  • Develop  and extend vocabulary,
  • Develop expressive language,
  • Provide support to achieve effective communication skills.

The weekly interventions are currently delivered by Mrs Neighbour, our Speech and Language Champion. She works alongside Mrs Marks, our Deputy SENDCo. Mrs Marks has recently taken the lead role for Speech and Language and aims to develop the provision further over the next two years.
