Communication Friendly Schools

Welcome to the homepage of Communication Friendly Schools at Gaer Primary School. Communication Friendly Schools (CFS) status is a whole school approach to improving speech, language and communication skills across the whole school. The accreditation is awarded to settings that have trained and supported all their staff in communication and language development. They will also have shown evidence of embedding this knowledge in targeted interventions and through the implementation of a Communication Policy. The initiative is run in conjunction with Elklan (Speech and Language Support) and the Gwent Communication Intervention Team (ComIT).

At Gaer Primary School we are delighted to have received the Communication Friendly School’s accreditation. Parents visiting the school may notice a number of resources displayed in all classrooms to promote the 5 key areas of development for Communication Friendly Schools:-

  • Interaction
  • Questioning
  • Extending Vocabulary
  • Making it Visual
  • Speaking Out

Gaer Primary School’s Communication Plan is available here and the school Communication Policy is available here
