LC1 and 2 classes form the Lambeth Centre for children with Speech and Language Impairment, housed within Wyvil School.
We have up to 15 children from ages 4 to 11 with an EHCP (Education, Heakth and Care Plan) naming the language centre who are supported by 4 adults as well as the Speech and Language Therapy Service from Evelina Children's Hospital.
Children follow the same curriculum as the rest of the school but at a slower pace. We also make the curriculum more visual and practical and sometimes children may need to follow the curriculum for a younger age.
We aim to boost children’s language and early learning skills with a high ratio of adult to child support and specialist resources. We include children in as many mainstream lessons as possible and inclusion is always decided on a case by case basis according to strengths across the curriculum.
The curriculum for Language Centre classes is enriched by weekly Tae Kwon Do, cooking, football and music with specialist teachers.
We also go on trips, often with the main school, each term. We have been to several major art galleries and museums as well as theatres, cinemas and the local fire station.
