Speech, Language and Communication Needs

                            Chase Lane – going for gold!

In July 2017 Chase Lane took a step closer towards the Gold award by achieving the Silver level.

The aim of the Essex Language and Communication School Award is to recognise a school’s excellence in supporting and developing children’s language and communication skills by developing provision at Universal, Targeted and Individual levels across four key areas:


  • The learning environment
  • The role of adults
  • Language development and learning
  • Person-centred approaches (the individual child)


Communication is fundamental to a child’s development, it is crucial for a child’s learning and social interactions both at school and into adulthood.


The award is received in recognition of all staff at Chase Lane showing a commitment and consistent approach when supporting our children with additional speech, language and communication difficulties.
