Newman School caters for young people with SEND from ages 2 to 19 in the Rotherham area. We work with lots of other fantastic local providers to make sure each of our pupils achieve their potential.
Communication is a life skill and early identification and intervention is essential. A skilled and supported workforce and joint working are critical to ensure best practice. The communication team based at Newman are experienced at delivering an alternative and augumentative means of communication e.g signing and use of communication aids, where there are barriers to using spoken language. A fully qualified Speech Therapist working alongside the AAC lead and Communications Manager ensure that any young person that has SLCN receive help, advice and interventions to meet their communication needs.
