Torfaen has a specialist teacher who provides advice and support to schools to meet the literacy needs of their pupils.

The SpLD teacher will be available to meet with school staff to discuss the children that receive additional school support, to help to review progress and support arrangements.

Identified pupils may be supported in a number of ways:

  • by working in groups with an LSA supported by advice and guidance from the specialist teacher.
  • by differentiated materials and specific strategies employed in the classroom

by specific assessments undertaken by the specialist teacher to help inform school programmes of support.

Referral Route

Each school will be offered access to teams’ consultations to discuss the needs of their pupils. They will also be offered the opportunity to attend relevant training sessions
