Service changes and visiting during the COVID-19 pandemic

During this COVID-19 pandemic there may be changes in the way some of our services work. Contact the service directly to check how services are being delivered and follow their advice.

Some of our services now offer video consultations. You should speak to your clinician if this is something you would like them to consider. You can find out more about video consultation here.

‘New to the role’ Language Lead networks

These networks are for those who are new to being a Language Lead or who are developing confidence in the role. It’s the best place to start to get established as a Language Lead! 

We recommend that you attend only one of the ‘new to the role’ sessions per term until you have attended all 3, i.e. if you are new to being a language lead you would come to session 1 this term, session 2 next term etc. This is because each session contains lots of new information as well as some reminders, and there will be actions to complete following each session.

Session 1: Wednesday 6 July 9:00-10:30am
This session focuses on: how to get started as a Language Lead and the setting environment.

Session 2: Wednesday 6 July 11:00–12:30pm
This session focuses on: staff development and working with parents.

Session 3: Wednesday 6 July 1:30-3:00pm
This session focuses on: planning & practice, tracking children, and liaising with others.
