Speech and Language Support (SEND)
Main contract details
The Council invites quotations for the provision of Speech and Language Support. From September 2022 Locality SEND Support (LSS) will become the standard way of supporting pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in all Croydon mainstream schools. LSS aims to provide early support to schools, SENDCOs and directly to pupils with emerging needs on order to avoid more serious interventions further down the line. As part of the offer to LSS schools we wish to contract early intervention, non-statutory, top-up SALT provision to support, train and clinically supervise school SENDCos, TAs and Teachers to be better able to provide early support to the children and young people in their schools and thus improve the life chances of Children and young people in the borough. This top-up support is in addition to and will complement the statutory and traded provision provided by NHS SALT commissioned by Croydon. This additional provision will be used to provide much earlier support than is normally possible through existing services. The work will concentrate more on consultations, early interventions, and empowering teaching staff to have the knowledge and confidence to support SEND students early and effectively.
