SLCN Centre







"Pupils with SEND achieve very well during their time at school. Staff are expert at ensuring pupils receive appropriate support and a thoughtfully adapted curriculum. Staff in the specialist support centre are highly skilled in delivering personalised strategies and approaches to pupils. These ensure that all pupils, including those with the most complex needs, are ready for the next stage of their education. Pupils in the specialist support centre benefit from learning alongside their mainstream peers whenever possible. Consequently, they develop confidence and independence. This also illustrates the high expectations leaders and staff have of all pupils."


Our Primary COIN centre caters for children with recognised developmental language disorders. The children are taught both in small groups in the centre as well as integrating into mainstream classes where they are taught with their peers. The centre staff work very closely with the speech and language therapy team, as well as mainstream teachers, to enable all children to develop to their full learning potential in an inclusive setting.

Our Provision

In the Nursery children are fully integrated into the mainstream class. They access daily therapy sessions with our Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, Mrs Kohler.

In Key Stages 1 and 2 children in the SLCN centre have access to small group teaching with specialist teaching staff.  Successful inclusion is a key aim and this takes different forms throughout the school day, depending on the needs of the children.

Our staff team know the children very well and adapt arrangements to maximise learning. We work closely with parents and carers.

When Ethan started Bletchingley Village School he only had four words, he was shy and frustrated - he knew what he wanted to say he just couldn't. Now, less than a year later, he is a different child! He now has too many words to count and is getting better everyday. He is a confident and happy child who is a member of his class with a very strong group of friends.  


Bletchingley Village School has been the absolutely right place, not just for Ethan, but for us as a family. All the staff at the school know Ethan very well and have really helped him be part of the school community. As a family, we have been supported throughout the school by being kept informed of Ethan's development and how we can support him at home.  Ethan's  growth over the past school year has just been incredible and I believe that this is has been down to the fact that his has been able to work closely with the SLCN team everyday as well as being part of a mainstream class - he doesn't feel "different" in anyway. 
If we were asked by parents in a similar situation should they send their child to Bletchingley Village School we would say yes without hesitation.
