Feedback From Schools


The targeted children have made progress which has been measurable from their starting points. Children that have worked with Katie are more confident and articulate speakers. They have an improved vocabulary and ability to process and follow instructions. Their listening and attention skills have also improved. The speech and language interventions have had a direct impact on improving children's literacy skills.

As a school we have been very happy with the service that Katie has provided and would continue to use her service next year if it were not for the fact that she is relocating. Katie has always been very flexible and happy to adjust to the needs of the school.

This has been a very worthwhile and invaluable service. Katie also works well with the children and they enjoyed working with her. All staff learnt invaluable information and skills. Katie was always very professional and worked well within the school setting and with staff.

Mrs Brown, SENCo, Powers Hall Junior School

The input has helped us to work with so many children. The children have been identified early and the fact that the majority are signed off by Year 2 says it all!

Prompt reports with clear targets with small realistically achievable targets.

Katie's input has been invaluable! Speech and language was a real issue with so many of our children and this service has been excellent. It's been such a pleasure working with Katie- we will really miss her!

SENCo, Chipping Hill Primary School

All aspects of speech and language have worked really well in our school. Katie's knowledge of speech and language has helped the pupils, parents and staff. Katie has been an asset and will be greatly missed.

Mrs Atkinson, Communication Assistant, Howbridge Infant School

Katie has given us useful activities to use to develop the children's language at differing levels. Very pleased with Katie's service, always prompt, reports were received within 36 hours even.
She has a very good manner with the children too.

Mrs Thompson, SENCo, St Andrew's Juniors, Hatfield Peverel

Katie's input has enabled the pupils to progress in their speech and language skills which have benefited them within the classroom and at home.

She is positive and motivating with the pupils and has a calm nurturing manner. Her sessions are always structured and logical, as are her reports and targets for pupils.

She always sets targets relevant to the pupil's abilities which are fun and motivating. The targets are in small steps so pupils, staff and parents can see the results of the input and the progress being quickly made.
She is very supportive to the school staff.

Katie is reliable, punctual and liaises effectively with school staff. She responds to information given to her by the school staff and feeds this into her targets.

She has a calm and gentle approach to children and therefore puts the pupils at ease.

We are sorry to be losing her services.

Anonymous, Witham

Katie's resources are fabulous and can be used for other children.
She's always ready to answer questions and give advice.

Regular reports are sent through-no chasing up required!
The whole process is so much quicker than the NHS services.
Any worries or concerns are responded to quickly and staff are able to action the advice received.

Katie is completely reliable and approachable.

Nothing is too much trouble.

She has organised excellent training for support staff.
