The acronym “SCERTS” refers to the focus on:
“SC” – Social Communication – the development of spontaneous, functional communication, emotional expression, and secure and trusting relationships with children and adults;
“ER” – Emotional Regulation – the development of the ability to maintain a well-regulated emotional state to cope with everyday stress, and to be most available for learning and interacting;
“TS” – Transactional Support – the development and implementation of supports to help partners respond to the child’s needs and interests, modify and adapt the environment, and provide tools to enhance learning (e.g., picture communication, written schedules, and sensory supports). Specific plans are also developed to provide educational and emotional support to families, and to foster teamwork among professionals. Miss S Khatoon (Assistant SENCO) is the Lead Practitioner for the SCERTS Intervention at The Rosary, please contact her via the school office if you wish to discuss.
WellComm is a speech and language toolkit that can be used with children from 6 months to 6 years of age. It is a means of tracking progress of all children and will identify areas of concern in language, communication and interaction. If your child is in EYFS and you have any concerns, please speak to Ms Percival, EYFS Lead.
We are very fortunate to have Bailey and Ms Stafford who visit us weekly to support social skills through a reading programme. Mrs Banks attends these sessions with the children.
