Area SEN Coordinators (SENCos)

The Area SENCos are a team of qualified early years professionals who all have extensive experience of working with children with a range of additional needs, including Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Global development delay, and speech language and communication difficulties.

They offer support and advice to private, voluntary and independent early years settings (children’s centres, nurseries, childminders, playgroups and preschools) to help develop inclusive practice and plan for children with additional needs.

They offer training and workshops for early years practitioners and SENCos to cover a range of SEND issues as well as providing advice on appropriate strategies to use for particular children and supporting settings to make timely referrals to other agencies, including EHC needs assessments.
