Speech & Language Support

At Sherford Vale, there are a number of ways that we support the speech, language and communication needs of our children.

  • Advice and support sought from our link S&L Therapist at Livewell.
  • Assessment and specialist assessment from the S&L Team at Livewell.
  • Interventions and programmes of support implemented by a Speech and Language Therapist, alongside coaching for teachers and support staff into how to conduct the support in school.
  • CPD opportunities for all staff to broaden and strengthen understanding of support strategies such as: cued articulation, colourful semantics, Early Years Speech and Language development.

This year, the school will also be supported by Chloe Ridgway, a Speech and Language Therapist from the Plymouth Learning Partnership. Chloe will be in school every Monday, to conduct assessments, work directly with children and provide advice and support for staff.

All support requires a referral either to Livewell or to our PLP in-school service. Please speak to your child's class teacher, or contact
