Hiltingbury Schools Speech and Language Centre

We will be holding an open morning for prospective parents, in the Autumn Term.

Please email to be added to the invite list. 

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 Educational Needs, with speech and language as the primary area of need identified (e.g. developmental language disorder, speech sound disorder, verbal dyspraxia - NOT social communication disorder / ASC). We are based across Hiltingbury Infant and Junior Schools.

Mrs Anna Scarr is the Resourced Provision Manager, and she is supported by seven Special Needs Assistants (Mrs Jo Rimmer, Miss Kerry Elkins, Mrs Morgan, Ms Wallace, Mrs Cavuoto, Mrs Howe and Mrs Mugford). Mrs Stephanie Day, Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) who is specially designated by NHS Solent, visits on Tuesdays 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 change in [my daughter] is amazing, and it is all down to you and the amazing staff within the Resourced Centre. She is so ready for Year 1.” - Year R Parent

“I have felt absolutely certain that [my daughter] is going to school every day to a place that sees what she can do and opens up the world to her.” - Year 1 Parent

“[My son] was in the Resourced Provision at Hiltingbury from Year R, and transitioned with the provision into Juniors. We fell in love with Hiltingbury due to the diligent, caring nature of all the staff, especially the Resourced Provision... I honestly could not recommend this school enough for any child that needs extra support. The whole team are a pleasure to interact with, and I am so grateful to them for the support and help they showed [my son]  and us to navigate the unknown. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
