NELI - Nuffield Early Language Intervention

As part of an initiative funded by the Department for Education in response to Covid-19, our school is being offered access to a programme called Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI). The programme is designed for reception pupils and involves providing targeted small group and one-toone support for children who would benefit from additional support with their language and early literacy skills. The NELI programme begins with the assessment of all our reception pupils using a tablet-based assessment called LanguageScreen. This assessment is to help us understand who may benefit most from receiving the NELI intervention. LanguageScreen is a short (approx. 10 minutes) fun activity for children which gives useful information about children’s language skills. The assessment is used again at the end of the school year to help us see how children’s language skills have benefited from the NELI intervention.
