Parent Coffee Mornings:  

We are thrilled at the success and attendance for our new SEND Coffee Mornings. We will be organising new meetings for the Autumn Term so keep an eye out for the dates on the newsletter. 

If you have any topics you would like to see covered, please just pop it on an email to me. I will update the new topics on here as soon as I have finalised them. Please also keep an eye on the school newsletter for more updates. 

 ***Great News!*** 

We are so proud to have achieved ELKLAN Communication Friendly Status. All of our staff attended specialist training and we were awarded our certificates in July 2022. Miss Panting and Mrs Wright are our school Communication Champion Leads. We are all proud to promote speech, language and communication across the school. 

We are also the proud leads of one of Tendring's only Communication Hubs for Speech and Language. We work with dozens of pre-schools, nursery settings, childminders and primary schools to improve speech and language outcomes for children with SEND.

Talking Point:

 'Talking Point' was set up in September 2022 as a way of raising awareness and understanding for neurodiversity within our community. We will shine a spotlight on different conditions. Please see below for more information.
