Redwood Speech and Language Resource Base

Provision description

The Redwood Speech and Language Resource Base was established in 2009 following a borough-wide review of Special Educational Needs. It was felt that there was a need for mainstream schools to establish and develop resource bases to meet the needs of SEN pupils. The resource base is set up to specifically support children with speech, language and communication needs who may struggle in a mainstream environment. The children accessing the class will have:

  bulletpoint
  • Access to a full, rich and relevant curriculum
  bulletpoint
  • Opportunities to develop socially and intellectually
  bulletpoint
  • Specialist support through small group teaching and therapy

 

The approach is one that is flexible and responsive to the individual needs of each child. The aim of the resource base is to support and increase:

  bulletpoint
  • Independent learning
  bulletpoint
  • Strategies to overcome specific difficulties
  bulletpoint
  • Access to an inclusive mainstream education

 

Specialist support

Children in Redwood benefit from the expertise of a multidisciplinary team. Highly effective relationships between the teaching and the speech and language therapy team are established and maintained through:

  bulletpoint
  • Joint planning
  bulletpoint
  • Team teaching
  bulletpoint
  • Therapy occurring within the classroom as well as separately

 

  • Our flexible approach to specialist provision for speech and language difficulties will allow the needs of individual learners to be met most sensitively, improve their life chances, and fulfil their potential. Tidemill’s vision is clear, our children must have the best possible education in order to unlock potential and improve their life chances. This is especially important for children with speech, language and communication needs. To visit our SEN and Inclusion page click here.
