Useful information

The Language and Learning Partnership is made up of a team of professionals with backgrounds in Mainstream and Specialist provision. We are here to support schools with children who are experiencing difficulties in the classroom and would like specialist advice, resources and strategies for these children to make the best progress. Our team will assess needs around cognition and learning, provide possible resources to consider, and set targets for next steps in learning. 

Children who are referred into our service should be presenting as 2 years below age related expectations, be in Range 3 and above, and have support plans from school in place.

Referrals should be sent to  LLP@togetherforchildren.org.uk
