Speech and Language Provision

Hi I’m Nicola Blundell and I am the Speech and Language therapist working at High Street Primary Academy. I have worked here for four years before my maternity leave and am pleased to be back. I work in the school every Monday during term time. I work with children of all ages from nursery to Year 6 sometimes on their own or in small groups. I also give resources for the children to do with their classroom staff. I help children with a wide range of needs which may include;

  • Saying the right speech sounds
  • Stammering
  • understanding instructions
  • learning and remembering new words

and much more.

If you are worried about your child’s speech and language development please talk to Mrs Sanders (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) who can arrange an appointment with me.

Please see below further information concerning how we identify and support Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) at High Street Primary Academy.
Below is a really useful resource, the Foundation Fun booklet, which is given out to all of our parents when they start in Mrs O' Brien's class in Foundation. 
Here is another resource which is also really useful which is given out to our parents when they have children starting in Nursery.
