Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI)
Our reception classes will be running a programme called Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) provided by OxEd and Assessment. The programme involves providing targeted small group and one-to-one support for children who would benefit from additional support with their language and early literacy skills. For more information about NELI please visit www.teachneli.org.
The NELI programme begins with the assessment of all 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. For more information about LanguageScreen please visit www.oxedandassessment.com/languagescreen.
To implement the assessment the school needs to upload information about our reception pupils to OxEd. OxEd’s data privacy statement, detailing how data is collected and used, can be accessed here.
We hope you are as excited as we are about this wonderful opportunity for our children. If you have any concerns, or do not wish your child to be assessed using LanguageScreen, please let us know.
