Lakenham Primary School and Nursery are proud to be one of the Norwich Opportunity Area's four hub schools promoting the improvement of speech, language and communication skills. We have four trained communication champions in school, including two communication champion leaders who are qualified to train others. As a hub school we will hold regular network meetings to provide support and ensure consistency. We will be training our own staff to identify speech, language and communication difficulties and to provide support for our pupils. We will provide support to feeder and other local settings too. We are planning training sessions for parents and childminders in 2020. Please contact Tracey Hawthorne or Jess Bell if you are interested in receiving this training.
If you are a parent who has any concerns about your child's speech, language or communication development, please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher to discuss this. ECCH are a speech and language therapy service who support us with pupils at Lakenham Primary School. They have useful information for parents on their website ( salt.ecch.org/parents/ ) that may be able to answer some of your questions.
