Wanted! Inclusive secondary schools and Speech and Language Therapy Teams, to support Transition to Secondary, of Year 6 pupils

We are seeking to identify mainstream secondary schools, especially in economically deprived areas across the UK, which could be a venue for a week’s specialist transition course for Year 6 pupils with speech, language and communication needs, during the summer holidays 2017.

This targeted course for SLCN pupils, can run alongside an existing mainstream transition programme, or other sports or cultural activities planned in the holidays.  Delivery is by local Speech and Language Therapy Teams, usually with some matched grant funding through Afasic.

This course specifically supports Ofsted requirements for SEND and inclusion and shows effective leadership across clusters, parental and pupil engagement.  It is supported by research from City, IOE and Newcastle University, using a tried and tested model.

To find out more, please watch this short film produced by the SLTs running Greenwich transition courses and see the short briefing below.  Interested? Please contact: Sue Denning.
