Communication and Language


Communication and Language Vision


At St Edmunds we believe that speech, language and communication skills are vital for all children. Without these skills they will not reach their full potential. All members of staff know that they have a very important role to play in supporting all children’s speech and language development, and identifying when they might be having difficulty.

It is essential that the speech, language and communication needs of all children are considered; children need to be able to:

  • listen to and understand information they are given
  • make sense of concepts and ideas they are learning
  • learn a whole range of new words and use them well
  • share their ideas with others and answer questions
  • use language to solve problems ask for help or explanations
  • read, write and learn to spell interact with others, play and socialise

Children with different speech and language abilities will need different support to help them to be able to do all of the above. 

No child or young person should be denied the opportunity to help improve their communication and we recognise that some children need focused and intensive support to reach their full potential.
