Hiltingbury Schools Speech and Language Centre
The Hiltingbury Schools Speech and Language Centre (Resourced Provision)
The Hiltingbury Schools Speech and Language Centre is an inclusive Resourced Provision for up to 12 children aged between 4 and 11, who have an EHCP for Special Needs, with speech and language as the primary area of need identified. We are based across Hiltingbury Infant and Junior Schools.
Mrs Anna Scarr is the Resourced Provision Manager, and she is supported by six Special Needs Assistants (Mrs Jo Rimmer, Miss Josie Wootton, Mrs Cassie Winter, Mrs Clare Howe, Mrs Belinda Harvey and Mrs Andrea Mugford). Mrs Stephanie Day a Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) who is specially designated by NHS Solent visits every Tuesday to work with children who are part of the Resourced Provision.
Our provision is fully inclusive, meaning that as well as having a place within the Resourced Provision, children will have a place in Hiltingbury Infant School or Hiltingbury Junior School, and will be a full member of a class within the school. Both schools are fully committed to the effective inclusion of the Resourced Provision’s pupils into the life of the mainstream schools, whilst promoting and encouraging an ethos of personal achievement, confidence and independence.
“The additional resource provision caters extremely well to pupils with speech, language and communication difficulties. Pupils achieve a high level of success, making rapid progress across all areas of the curriculum.”
“Teaching assistants provide expert guidance to pupils.”
“Pupils, including those who join in from the additional resource provision, respond well, radiate enthusiasm and try their very best.”
