The Communication Faculty is one of three faculties at Eldon Grove Academy. The aim of the faculty is promote and develop communication and language across school. We believe language and communication are essential in the classroom, children’s learning, staff communication and in children understanding both themselves and the world around them. We nurture this by planning and co-ordinating a wide variety of activities to promote the importance of language and confidence in communication, including: annual Speaking and Listening Activity Days (SALAD), French days, Raising Aspiration days and “no pen” days. We further develop these skills through our everyday teaching and learning.
