School have been receiving speech and language therapy input since September 2015. They have grown in knowledge and skills and are firmly committed to prioritizing language development. The opening of their new nursery in September 2017 provided the best possible opportunity for early identification and intervention.
All children arriving in Reception are routinely screened. This year, Wellcomm scores for the first Court Farm nursery ‘graduates’ were compared with those of children arriving from other settings. An enormous 84% of the Court Farm children are age-appropriate or just below, compared with 53% of the new arrivals. Only one Court Farm child has significant difficulties, compared with almost a third of the new arrivals.
