Enrichment Group

Enrichment Group 2021

Our Enrichment group provides specialist support for children with early speech, language and communication needs, the majority of whom require an EHCP. The group has been run at Ludwick for forty years and until this year was funded by Herts County Council. Governors and staff at Ludwick remain committed to this group, despite facing huge financial challenges. This year we continue to meet the needs of the eight children in our care. Sadly we no longer have the regular input from the Speech and Language Therapist team.

So far this year we have supported 6 of our 8 families to go through the EHCP process for their child. This ensures that the child’s needs are met fully and they can access the support that they are entitled to as they progress through their education.

Our Enrichment Group is led by Mrs Sally Laflin who is a qualified teacher and SENCO at Ludwick. She is also an SLE and an Elklan trainer.

She is supported by a Senior Early Years Practitioner, Mrs Carol Pharaoh (Autism lead) and Mrs Louisa Jackson who is a specialist learning support assistant. They are highly skilled in developing children’s early communication needs. Mrs Kerry Sparrow is an LSA providing 1:1 support.
