Useful Strategies

She Taunt Me a Few Handy Tricks

I worked with Mrs Hill for a relatively short time. She helped me gain confidence with my interactions with other people. I am not very good at eye contact as I am very shy but she taught me a few handy tricks. I also had lots of help with my speaking to adults. Recently I went to visit my next school where I had an interview with the Head of Art and the Head of School. Mrs Hill’s advice helped me feel proud of my interview. Charlie aged 12

Ongoing Support or our Daughter

We met Becky when she did a Speech and Language Report for our daughter when she was having difficulties at school. Becky not only assessed our daughter and produced an excellent report on her difficulties and things to help her but she was a great person and she really liked her and said she would like to have Becky as a teacher. I can only express our thanks to Becky for her help and ongoing support for our daughter and for us as parents she has really helped us for our childs future

Becky is Exceptional

In this time she has supported children who experience difficulties with aspects of language and communication. Becky is exceptional. Her intuition and empathy combined with her knowledge and experience are a winning combination. She is able to work with children in such a way that they not only make progress but often exceed expectations. She has the ability to understand the children’s difficulties and is also outstanding when it comes to communicating her thoughts and ideas to staff and parents alike. (SENCo Lucy Silk)
