Description

The Council has a statutory duty to provide support for children and young people with special educational needs. One such service is speech and language therapy, which for this service will support primarily school pupils to access the national curriculum.

The service will be for primary school pupils in mainstream schools within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The principal delivery mode of this service will be to train teaching professionals to be able to deliver some initial SaLT through newly acquired skills and tools to be used in the classroom; then via formal and accredited training courses teaching professionals will be able to deliver more complex SaLT. This approach will be complimented by group and 1:1 interventions delivered directly by the service provider to children.

Whilst primarily the service will be delivered in schools and within term time there is scope for providers to consider a nuanced approach to delivery, which could include work outside of the locations and times cited.

Providers will contribute into the review of individual Education, Health & Care Plans as well as annual or other periodical reviews by educational institutions.
