Pupils and staff at St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School in Allerton have been recognised for their commitment to supporting the speech, language and communications development of every child.
The school has been awarded the “Friendly School Status”, by the ELKLAN Group a specialist in speech and language.
In order to gain the accreditation, four staff gained formal qualifications in supporting speech, language and communication needs. The training was then disseminated to all teachers and teaching assistants at St Matthew’s, enabling them to support pupils both in the classroom and the playground.
