Here at Fiveways we strongly believe that communication is the centre of all learning and the core focus for pupils throughout the curriculum. Everyone has the right to communicate and we strive to promote pupil choice, control and independence. The specialist Communication and Interaction Team works collaboratively with staff and parents to break down individual barriers to communication, to develop their voice and reach their full potential.
All pupils have a communication profile. This provides key information of an individual’s level of communication ability and how best to support their speech, language and communication needs.
We offer a range of assessments and work with teachers to set and monitor personal learning targets. Pupils have the opportunity to access a range of tailored programmes to develop speech, expressive language, comprehension and social interaction skills.

Inclusive Communication Environment
Fiveways School strives to create supportive, inclusive communication environments. We embrace and value all forms of communication equally and emerge these strategies within our classrooms and areas across the school.
We are able to offer a range of specific alternative and augmentative communication (ACC) strategies.
