“PLP give my school access to incredible, hard-working, knowledgeable and caring experts in education. The impact we see in Speech and Language and through workshops and CPD is considerable.

“I think PLP MAST have the balance just right, they emapthise with the challenges schools face and they respond in a timely manner. They support, guide and advise, but are not unrealistic or judgemental. We feel supported and guided in a way no other service can match at present..”

"Our PLP SALT is invaluable to us. She is brilliant at supporting us in providing advice and strategies to support early SAL need, often eliminating the need for support later on. She is also flexible in the use of her time and has provided assessments and advice for older children, enabling us to identify and support needs for these children."
