We currently have 190 pupils on roll, who all have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and receive teaching and specialist support in small groups.

Stony Dean provides a “language-rich” environment where therapeutic strategies supporting a wide range of Speech, Language and Communication difficulties are incorporated into a fully integrated specialist teaching approach.

We are currently looking to expand our specialist team to recruit a creative and dynamic newly qualified speech and language therapist with a passion for learning. This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a supportive, well-established speech and language team, working collaboratively with the school teachers and learning support staff to promote student independence, well-being and communication across the curriculum.

• Working alongside the SALT team to implement a “specialist teaching skills” staff CPD training programme.
• Small group and in class work opportunities to deliver specific and targeted social skills groups.
• A dynamic caseload with the opportunity to deliver therapy and see outcomes achieved.
