Harcourt Primary School

Speech and Language Support

Harcourt works to support speech, language and communication with support from our NHS link speech & language therapist Sarah Covatti as well as specialist teachers. Your child may come into contact with Sarah within their classroom or around school. The SENCo Tanya O Connor, will have regular meetings with Sarah Covatti to discuss our school’s provision.

If you have any concerns about your child’s speech, language or communication skills, please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.

If we have discussed a specific concern with you about your child’s speech, language or communication, or you have raised a concern, we will decide together whether to discuss this with our link therapist. You will be kept informed of any plans to support your child.
