NEW FREE Parent Portal

We know that schools will be putting together plans, resources and activities to ensure that pupils are supported with their learning at home, when school closes.  

To support children's speech, language and communication needs, we have fast tracked the launch of our new Parent Portal to help with this. The site will be live from this Friday (20th March) and will provide parents (and staff) with FREE speech and language advice, resources and activities.  We are very happy for you to add the link to this site to your websites and of course to direct parents and school staff to the site so they can be reassured that the support for their children, who have SLCN, doesn't have to stop once their school closes.

The site can be found at  https://speechandlanguage.info/paren
