Batchley Events

We support children with Special Educational Needs and Speech and Language Difficulties throughout settings in Redditch, Bromsgrove and Kidderminster.

As part of the Local Offer to Schools and Nurseries, Worcestershire has appointed Batchley First School as the commissioned provider for Outreach for the children in Batchley Nursery Plus, Redditch Early Years Language Class, Bromsgrove Early Years Language Class and Kidderminster Early Years Language Class.


  • Enable children with speech and language difficulties and learning disabilities to be supported in the early years setting with expert advice and continuity of care.
  • Ensure that settings are inclusive of children with speech and language difficulties and learning disabilities.
  • Offer advice, training and resources, where required, to help maintain access to a full curriculum.
