Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

Allsorts welcomes children with Special Educational Needs of all types. We have a dedicated SEND co-ordinator in each preschool with a wide range of experience. All children, whatever their need will be accepted if we can make reasonable adjustment to accommodate their needs. We link with outside agencies where needed such as portage, speech and language, educational psychologist’s and paediatricians. Some children may only need a little support just from the preschool and others may need a joined up approach from other agencies and possibly some 1-1 support within the preschool. Whilst your child is with us or before attending if needed, we will access training relevant to your child’s needs wherever possible if we do not already have that training and expertise. We will do whatever we can to ensure your child is treated inclusively and able to access activities and resources relevant to their needs. Admission is by availability by birthdate regardless of need and may dependant on availability of staffing for 1-1 support, but we will endeavour to accommodate sessions as required. Please contact us for further information.

Record Last Updated
