Specialist Resource Provision


Primary need is speech, language and communication (two years or more language delay/disorder).  This includes boys with bilateral hearing loss (moderate to profound) with language delay or disorder; boys may also have a secondary need of social communication providing that their needs can be met in a lanuage rich environment and are compatible with the needs of children with hearing loss.  Students will be able to access a differentiated mainstream curriculum.

How does it work?

Coombe Boys' SRP will have a cohort of 20 students when full.  There will be four spaces per year group. All students come with an Education, Health and Care Paln (EHCP).
