Involving Parents and Carers in NELI

Getting parents and carers involved in their child’s learning can be key to a child’s success at school and getting them involved in their child’s experience of NELI is no exception. To encourage this, we have created a range of newsletters for parents and carers, from an initial introductory welcome letter, through newsletters for individual NELI sessions and a final end of year wrap-up.

Downloadable elements of NELI Resource Pack

NELI includes a comprehensive pack of physical resources to support with delivering the programme to pupils. Some elements of that resource pack are available to download here, such as the Days of the Week board or Best Listener badges.  You will also find Sound Effects used in Part 1 Session 22, and various record forms such as the Assessment for Narrative Speech and Grammar.

What to do when you reach the halfway point

As you approach the end of the first 10 weeks of the NELI intervention, it’s worthwhile taking a moment to review your next steps. This section guides you through which assessments to repeat with pupils, and reminds you of what training to complete, before starting the second 10 weeks.
