Bennerley Fields

Speech & Language

Welcome to the speech and language department area. We work throughout the school with children 1:1, in small groups and in the classroom alongside teaching staff.

In the classroom we model good practice and share observations of children with teaching colleagues. In groups and 1:1 therapy, some children work with us for a short time to solve a specific problem. Other children work with us intensively and for a long time if they have complex needs.

As well as our focus on children, we run training courses and share good practice with other NHS therapy colleagues and teachers from other schools.

January 2015 Ofsted Report:

"Teachers have very strong partnerships with the school’s speech and language specialists. This has resulted in them using specific questioning strategies in their classrooms that are particular to individual pupils."
