Useful resources and support for professionals

Part of our role as a Hub is to offer support and guidance to schools across the Local Authority. There are many ways in which we can help, from visiting your school to deliver training, to offering a 1:1 appointment to discuss the needs of your school or a particular child.

Schools are invited to borrow resources from our Lending Library. We recommend that you make an appointment to discuss which resources are most suitable for the needs of your school. You can do this be emailing

The NHS run various training to schools:

'Please find below the Vimeo links for the core language training for schools that we have on offer. The workbooks that we have for these can be found here You can also find the leaflets that I mentioned I direct schools to which relate to these here'
