Abbot’s Lea School as Chatta Centre of Excellence

Did you know we were visited by the creator of Chatta – Chris Williams. After collaborating with us during the remote learning period, he visited us yesterday to observe the Chatta method in practice across our Key Stages.

Thanks to our class teams who have demonstrated exceptional teaching of language and oracy, as well as our continuous record-breaking activity on the Chatta software, we have proudly joined the Chatta family as the first accredited Chatta Centre of Excellence.

It is a great honour to be able to model this award-winning approach and support other schools in developing students’ communication in a fun and visual way.

Chatta is more than just an app, it is a method for visualising, modelling and practicing communication from first words to practicing oral presentations for job interviews.

Chris Williams shared his words about the decision to partner with us: “Congratulations to all of the school staff! What your school shows is a commitment to giving students the very best opportunities in life as they grow through the school and enter the world beyond. The high-impact, forward-thinking, inclusive educators in this school deliver something exceptional. I am proud that Chatta is associated with the wonderful staff of Abbot’s Lea School.”


Another recognition of our efforts and the impact we have on our students’ success. Congratulation to everyone involved as well as those who will discover the benefits of using Chatta!
