We are an ELKLAN Communication friendly school!
Ravenshall School is now an Elklan Communication Friendly Setting. After a year of hard work from staff in school and with support from our Locala speech and language therapist Theresa Dickinson we achieved this prestigious award. All staff in school have been trained to support communication and language development and a ‘Total Communication’ approach has been implemented throughout the school. The positive impact is clearly evident in school with one member of staff commenting in their feedback about the training “It’s fantastic to see pupils who would avoid eye contact walk around school communicating with each other and staff in the classrooms along the corridor, in the playground and even on trips out in the local community.”
Ravenshall school has a long term plan to continue to develop communication as a priority, to continue to work closely with Locala speech and language therapy colleagues, staff, families, and pupils.
