Nuffield Early Language Intervention

Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) provides one-to-one and small-group support for reception children with poor spoken language skills. It is delivered over two terms (20 weeks) by teaching assistants who have received training from Oxford University. The intervention focuses on developing children’s early language through:

  • two 15-minute individual sessions each week
  • three 30-minute small group sessions each week.

Schools who are new to NELI may be eligible for funded access to the programme in the 2021/22 academic year.

More information about the programme and how to register for funded access is available at the NELI website.
