A strategy for systems change – get spoken language and SLCN embedded in plans
Join your Parent group to get involved in the development of your local children’s plan, making sure SLCN is an integral part.
Ask your child’s school/setting/schools you work in about the numbers of children with SLCN, and whether it is in the school development plan.
Use our information sheet to check out your child’s school/setting’s SEN information report to see whether there is mention of how they support children’s SLCN, share our suggested wording with your child’s teacher about it.
Use the ‘best practice’ principles from the Bercow: Ten Years On report to discuss the support their child is receiving in their school or setting.
Look out for your LA SEND inspection here and take up the invitation to meet with inspectors when they inspect your local SEND services. Use our information sheet for advice about questions you can ask, and ideas for useful information to share.
