Primary school SLCN packages:

Infant Language Link and Junior Language Link include a language screening assessment and a whole range of supporting resources and advice are provided to address both classroom practice and small group work. The assessments are recommended for use as a universal screen in year R and the start of Key Stage 2.

Speech Link enables teachers to check for delays in the development of speech sounds. Speech work within school or referral to a speech and language therapist is recommended by the screening tool. Guidance, resources and games are provided to enable work with pupils in school.

Secondary SLCN package:

Secondary Language Link package was introduced in January 2014. It equips schools with a standardised screening tool to identify pupil's understanding of language at Key Stage 3. Schools are supported to address the needs of pupils identified using the small group intervention, TALK FITNESS.

Central to the package is a focus on supporting the classroom teaching. The online teacher training package, SLCN Inclusion Toolkit together with the strategies to support differentiation outlined in the Inclusive Teaching Plans enable schools to evaluate their inclusive practice.
