CFE & School Starter Pack

Creating a Communication Friendly Environment

The Communication Friendly Environment (CFE) pack is designed to assist and advise you on how to create an inclusive school environment.

Communication Friendly Environments strongly link with the Government’s commitment to improve education for children and young people within the Children and Families Bill. The ideas and resources in the CFE pack will support the inclusive strategies, approaches and responsibilities outlined in the Children and Families Bill.

Strong language skills and good communication are key to whole-school improvement, progression and attainment. Communication is an important element within any school or education establishment and many schools work towards Dyslexia Friendly Status or the Communication Friendly accreditation to acknowledge their good practice. The CFE pack supports schools working towards these quality awards as well as other schools who are committed in creating an inclusive environment. The pack contains a variety of symbolised resources to enhance the communication within the school environment.
