How will you support my child?

Our setting welcomes children with SEND and we are committed to working with parents and other professionals to provide good inclusive practice. Our Islington link Area SENCO provides us with support, advice and training regarding children with SEND. We support all children regardless of medical need, ability and will support parents/carers to get the best support needed for children using referral roots and linking with other professionals. We work closley with Packington Children's Centre, Riverside Health Centre and the Canonbury Children's Centre cluster, reviewing the best ways forward in supporting families in the local community.
