Islington Early Years Area SENCO Team

TheĀ Islington Early Years Area SENCO Team works to improve the quality of provision for children with special educational needs and disabilities in early years settings across Islington's 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 - ttraining and services hub
