Commissioning speech and language therapy services for your school: The ‘One Stop’ Guide

We’ve developed a ‘One Stop Guide’ to run through key considerations for when planning to commission speech and language support in Primary and Secondary Schools. It’s aimed at all education staff including SENCos and Senior Leadership but also commissioners for academies and school governors.

The guidance includes top tips on decision making around the service that is commissioned, practical steps to take to integrate services in to school and how to assess if it’s actually working. We’ve also developed some case studies demonstrating schools commissioning practice. These were collected through interviews conducted with schools staff when researching the guidance.
