The Open Door and Communication Team


The Parkside Communication Team is made up of the following staff:

Mrs Smith Speech and Language (Therapist) – Communication Co-ordinator
Mrs Payne Sign-a-long Co-ordinator
Mrs Woodworth Open Door Communication Team Co-ordinator
Miss Chambers Communication Support
Miss Barnes NHS Speech and Language Therapy Service

Although each member of the team has a specific area of responsibility the team work together to promote communication and interaction across the school.

There is a strong emphasis on ensuring that pupils are able to function to the best of their ability in everyday situations, ensuing that communication difficulties are not a barrier to learning or social experience.

In order to achieve this The Open Door Communication Team have adopted a ‘whole school approach’ to work closely with classroom staff. We provide in class support, training to staff, direct 1:1 and group sessions with specific pupils. The team provides pupils with communication activities centred around play, the senses and exploring the world,  to highlight a child’s own interests, independence and spontaneous communication.
