Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN)/ Specialist Resource Provision (SRP)
The John Wesley CEMP School supports all children and promotes inclusive practice. Children that are well supported to develop their Speech, Language and Communication skills are often better equipped to learn across language-based subjects such as English, maths and science. Teachers and teaching assistants are trained in Language for Learning and Language through Colour and are skilled in using visual resources to support the learning of all children, as well as those children with specific SLCN. Good communication skills are also essential for learning how to manage feelings and develop peer and adult relationships.
The Communication Pyramid of Skills
In September 2019 we are very excited to be opening a Specialist Resource Provision (SRP) for children that have SLCN. Please click here for the JWS Entry and Exit offer. The SRP will ultimately offer places for up to 14 children that have an EHCP for Speech, Language and Communication Needs; however, this will happen over phased entry to ensure success for the children joining. The children will receive specialist teaching and support within the SRP from a designated Teacher, TA and Speech and Language therapist. Initially, the children may access English and maths teaching within the SRP as well as personalised support towards their speech and language targets. Promoting inclusive practice is very important to us, therefore the children that access SRP support will be registered within their mainstream class, and access daily routines such as entering/leaving the school with their peers, joining in with Worship, playtimes, lunchtimes, afternoon teaching sessions, school trips plus much more!
If your child already attends The John Wesley CEMP School, or is due to start and you have concerns regarding their Speech, Language or Communication Needs, please do not hesitate to speak to their Class teacher or Miss Hanks (SENCO).
