New DfE programme to support disadvantaged children's language development
The £845,000 scheme to boost children’s speech, language and communication skills has launched in Derby.
TALK Derby aims to increase the social mobility of children across the city, in particular those in the least advantaged areas, by strengthening their speech, language and communication skills.
Big Issue: Children's Speech and Language
It is funded by the Department for Education through the Derby Opportunity Area up until September 2020 and being co-ordinated by Hempsalls consultancy.
Under the programme, a city-wide campaign to promote the importance of talking and listening to children more will be launched. As part of the campaign, parents/carers, schools and early years settings will be encouraged to sign a pledge to spend more time talking and listening to the children in their lives at mealtimes, during play and through everyday conversations.
