GLF Schools

Speech and Language

A number of our staff are trained by the ‘Elklan Training Ltd’ scheme, to carry out Speech and Language sessions to support our children both inside the classroom and through a wide variety of intervention sessions. Elklan covers a wide range of topics including unclear speech, language support, encouraging speech and helping children with English as an additional language.

Elklan training has meant our staff have developed confidence whilst working with children who have Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN), they understand the importance of developing children’s communication and they are able to support children’s language development across the whole school environment from adaptations within the curriculum to games within the playground.

Within school, we run various speech and language sessions catered to the children’s needs. Interventions are run daily from Nursery to Year 6 and are adapted to meet the areas of development.

Through Elklan support we have been able to run parent workshops and send home resources packs to enable the children to continue their learning at home. As a school we strive to give our children the best start in life and through working alongside pupils and their families we are working together to give children the confidence to communicate effectively.
