On a fresh install of libreoffice on Debian 7, its lost the ability
to check my spelling as I type. I've looked at all the tick boxes that seem
relevant but it seems to be turned on but not working.

This particular download of libreoffice worked on an upgrade from
the previous version on Debian 7 before I re-installed, so I don't know
what the problem is.

Can anyone advise and help get it working properly please?

I guess it would be a good idea to check the paragraph style(s) you're using: if the language property for the style is not properly set, then no wonder spellchecking doesn't work as expected. It might be that the default styles are uncorrectly set wtr.

In order to check the style(s) :
0. Ensure the Stylist is opened (F11)
1. Put the cursor in a paragraph which style you want to check
2. In the Stylist window, the corresponding (paragraph) style is selected. Right click and select Modify
3. Go to the Font thumbnail and check the Language drop-down list.

I'd advise to first have a look at the Default style, because it is the parent of all other ones (you'll see that if you select the Hierarchy mode in the Stylist bottom drop-down). Hence, changing the Language property of Default would apply to all its heirs at once.
