Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

The SENCo for the setting works full time. We have experience of working with children with additional needs including speech and language delay, social and emotional disorders, ASD and children with extensive medical needs. We have worked with many outside agencies including Portage, speech and language therapist and educational psychologists. We support each child in the setting based on their individual needs and abilities. We work closely with the child’s parents throughout their time at preschool to ensure the children’s needs are continuously met and they reach their full potential.

See Frome Valley Pre-School's SEND policy.
