Dear Colleagues,

Early Years SEND catchup
The Early Years Inclusion Consultants are starting a half termly ‘Early Years SEND Catchup’. Here is the first edition, we will also be sending this directly to Early Years SENCO’s. If you would like this emailed directly to you, please let Amy or Joce know.
Free, Virtual Language Enrichment Training
Kirstie Page (from Launchpad for Literacy) is offering some free, virtual Language Enrichment Training. There is a strong focus on using interactions within child-initiated learning and daily routines to develop specific skills, close language gaps and support children with Speech, Language & Communications needs.

There are two dates to choose from – if, when you book, either of these courses becomes sold out, please could you email Kirstie to let her know. This will allow her to send information about new dates directly to the right people before offering them to others. Kirstie’s email address is kirstie.page@launchpadforliteracy.co.uk
