St John’s Speech and Language Enhanced Resource Provision, an Inclusive Provision that caters for up to 22 children from the Foundation Stage to Year 6. All the children are subject to a Statement of Special Educational Needs. The aim of the Provision is to provide an environment in which the pupils can develop and improve their speech and/or language skills to a degree whereby they can return to their local school, ultimately without support. Education is a partnership between home and school and we look forward to your involvement and support.
