Speech & Language

If your child is struggling with their speech, language or communication we might ask for extra help from the NHS speech therapists or we might refer them to Chatterbox speech and language service.


As speech and language is such a high need in our school we buy in extra help from chatterbox one day a week to support our children, teachers and families. Our speech and language therapist in school is Gemma Bamford. Some children will work with the therapist directly and some children will be set a programme by the therapist for their teachers to carry out daily in the classroom.


If you would like any more advice or support around supporting your child with speech and language difficulties have a look at the videos and leaflets below or email
