Local Offer


We support children with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.

We liaise with Parents/Carers before children start to attend the setting to find out about their unique and specific requirements 

Where outside agencies such as Portage, Speech and Language Therapy services, Specialist Teaching Service, and The Children's Care Co-ordination Team are involved we meet with them alongside Parents/Carers to ensure the best possible outcomes for the child are met.

Please see more information below.
