At Milestone Academy, all staff are committed to supporting children’s speech, language and communication needs.  We have been working towards this award for the last two years.  We are really proud of our achievement as it is recognition of the work we do together to support the children’s speech, language and communication development and more importantly because of the impact our work has on children and families.

The Balanced System® Scheme for Schools is a whole system approach to improving outcomes for children and young people across the range of speech, language and communication needs.  The scheme has been created in response to schools’ demand for a strategic approach to understanding their role in commissioning and providing support for speech, language and communication needs.

Scheme for Schools provides an overarching set of outcomes, processes and outcome measures across the core five strands of the Balanced System®: supporting parents, young people and families; enhancing and adapting the environment; developing the workforce; identifying need; and providing appropriate intervention.
