Welcome to the Laurance Haines Specific Learning Difficulties Base (Literacy & Numeracy)
Laurance Haines SpLD Base is situated on site at Laurance Haines School. The Base serves 54 Primary Schools/Specialist Provisions in Watford and the surrounding area. It is one of 10 primary SpLD bases organised as part of the CSF's outreach provision to support local Primary and Special schools, including Bases and Units. Advice and support enhances the school's capacity to successfully meet the needs of pupils with specific literacy and numeracy needs. This is provided through school and pupil focussed consultation and training.
An Inset programme is planned and delivered termly. This offers a range of training for both Teachers and Teaching Assistants. Fliers and booking forms are sent to schools, but can also be accessed via the link on this website.
The Base is also a resource centre. We ensure resources kept are up to date and wide ranging. These focus on assessment, reading, spelling, writing and numeracy and include books, games and ICT.
