• Accelerate the speech, language and communication skills of pupils in order to raise achievement
• Identify and support pupils with speech, language and communication needs through targeted intervention and classroom strategies
• Evaluate the impact of speech and language intervention
• Prioritise which children will need referrals to specialist services
