It is very important that students use consistent approaches and strategies for communication between school and home.
Many of our pupils have personalised communication plans that outline their preferred method of communication. Each students' class teacher will share strategies with parents/carers that are effective in school (and vice versa!) so that school and home can work together effectively to continually develop students' communication skills. Please see below for some general strategies we use in school to support students' communication:
