A SCHOOL has been showing off its dedication to speech and language skills to Leigh MP Andy Burnham.

The shadow health secretary visited Leigh Central Primary School to find out how the school is taking part in a national project to help children's speech language and communication skills.

Talk of the Town is an integrated community led approach to supporting speech, language and communication which facilitates early identification, encourages joint working and improves outcomes for children and young people in areas of social deprivation.

The Communication Trust director Anne Fox said: “We're delighted with how the project is going so far and the schools have been amazing to work with.

“We're really pleased Andy Burnham can come to Leigh Central and see for himself how much is going on locally to support children's communication.”
