Links with Home & Schools
As part of the placement, the teachers provide at least 2 outreach support visits a year at the learners’ home-schools. The purpose of these visits are to:
•Have a professional dialogue with school staff
•share successful strategies and resources (in mainstream and SLRB)
•model the use of resources and facilitating the child to use strategies
•provide support around differentiating the curriculum/activities
•gain an overview of how the child is progressing including academic levels and relevant assessments
Over their placement, the SALT will also visit them in their home school to work with the staff as well as the child.
