Topcliffe Speech and Language Resource Base
The current Speech and Language Resource Bases support 24 children with statements for specific language impairments. Their needs are met in the following ways:
Each Resource base is supported by 1 teacher and 1 teaching assistant.
Staff address children’s needs through individually tailored programmes. Pupils within the Resource base have regular access to Speech and Language therapy provision. Speech therapists work collaboratively alongside teaching staff to promote and consolidate children’s specific speech and language needs.
Some children, when appropriate access mainstream lessons within their weekly timetable. Work is fully adapted to ensure the children’s successful access to the National Curriculum.
