We are currently operating as an emergency care facility for children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services) and children with certain needs. The Government have advised that children stay at home where possible and only use this service when there is no alternative provision for the children.

Talk Boost

Talk Boost


Miss Ashmore takes a group of Reception children, 3 times a week, to deliver a 'Talk Boost' programme.

What is Talk Boost?
Talk Boost is a targeted intervention designed to improve the language and communication skills of children aged from 4-7 years.
It is not specifically designed or targeted at children with English as a second language but it can support their progress.

What does Talk Boost aim to do?
-Address all elements of language and communication appropriate to the age of the children
-Support us to identify children with language delay
-Support the teacher to embed speaking and listening into whole class activities

If you have any questions or concerns or would like more advice on 'Communication' or 'Speaking and Listening', please feel free to ask a member of staff.
