We would like to say that we are so proud of all of our pupils and their resilience and attitude in what has been a difficult year and a half, thanks you wonderful children you are FAB. A special mention to the year 6 pupils who leave us today; we sincerely wish you the very best as you move to secondary school, but offer an open invitation if any of you would like to come and see us in the future......... keep us informed of how things are going. Stay safe over the summer period and we look forward to seeing everone back on Thursday 2nd September- bright eyed and bushy tailed. .................. please keep an eye out for parentmails during the summer break as there is lots to share with you all........................Let us hope that next year is 'normal' and that we can enjoy being together in class and in school. Thanks to all the parents that have worked so hard to help their children through lockdowns, both academically and emotionally...........we know how difficult it was. Stay safe!

Speech and Language

Welcome to our Speech, Language and Communication Needs page!

 

Being able to communicate is one of the most important skills we need in life,  Almost everything we do involves communication; everyday tasks such as learning at school, asking for food and drink, sorting out our problems, making friends and having fun.  These all rely on our ability to communicate with each other.   *

My name is Mrs Conner and I am the very happy  S.a.L.S.A., here at Freemantle Community Academy.

 

S.a.L.S.A. stands for Speech and  Language Support Assistant.  It’s my job to support the N.H.S. Speech Therapist that is attached to our school.  I deliver the therapy that she  prescribes for the pupils on her caseload.  I also support our  S.E.N.D.Co.s , Miss Hindley and Mrs McCartney by assessing the speech and language abilities of our children.  I contribute to E.H.C.P. applications and Annual Reviews.   I work together with the teachers to create a communication friendly classroom and provide different strategies for individual children, for example, setting up a workstation.  Of course, the most fun part of my job is in supporting the children!        I work with pupils in small groups or one to one, in our dedicated speech and language space, The Haven.  

 

Have a look through these page links below.

You might find some of the video sessions and ideas fun to share at home!   You can find out more about how Speech, Language and Communication develop and how children with a speech or language  difficulty are supported here at our lovely school .
