Seven schools in the Acle area will be celebrating the completion of a three year project to improve the language skills of their pupils.
The school cluster is the first in the country to gain Elklan Communication Friendly Status.
Two teachers and two teaching assistants from each primary school received specialised training in techniques to support the development of children’s language and communication skills.
The teachers then trained the rest of the staff in their schools.
The project was made possible by funding from Norfolk County Council’s High Needs SEN development funding.
