In September 2007, Corbets Tey School gained Specialist Status for Communication and Interaction and successfully re-designated in 2010. This enabled us to develop our Language work both internally for our own pupils and externally for Mainstream Schools and other partners. We spent our ‘Capital Build’ allocation on a new wing which provides a Language Resource Centre, Training room and Partnership offices on the first floor.
The Language Resource Centre is open every Thursday afternoons from 1.15 – 5.00 p.m. as a resource centre for schools and settings across the Borough. SENCOs and other staff can browse, borrow and discuss Language Programmes with staff and members of the Borough’s Speech, Language and Communication Service.
We have a wide range of resources that will assist in the delivery of Speech and Language programmes for pupils in all Key Stages including the under fives. These resources are free for schools to borrow to assist in the delivery of Speech, Language and Communication Programmes. We aim to be as user friendly as possible and therefore have technology based Language support resources e.g. Black Sheep Press, Symbols and Clicker as well as resource making equipment such as printers and laminators for your use. Resources are added to and expanded in line with schools’ needs, so please come along and let us know how we can support you.
