Early Years Area SENCO Team

The team aims to improve the quality of provision for children with special educational needs and disabilities in early years settings across the maintained, voluntary, private and independent sectors. We work with Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs), staff and parents in settings, following the code of practice procedures. We also provide training on SEN issues - both centrally and in-house.

Further information for Islington Early Years Practitioners can be found on IslingtonCS
