Inclusion, Equality and Diversity

If you feel a child in your setting has emerging or existing special needs and/or disabilities, then the Inclusion Team can support you on a range of issues relating to matters of inclusion. 

The Inclusion Team encourages providers to take responsibility for making changes to their provision to meet the needs of the children in your care.  The inclusion team can support the development of inclusive practice by advising on:

  • Supporting early identification and intervention
  • Observations and planning for children with SEN
  • Role of Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo)
  • Guidance on Individual Support/Educational Plans and Provision Maps
  • Visual aids and strategies
  • Strategies to support specific areas of development
  • Behaviour management for children with SEN
  • Support with liaison with parents for consistency of approach
  • Guidance on SEN policies required within early years settings
  • Support with and signposting to a range of professionals and specialist agencies
  • Support with transition

The Inclusion Team provides support to early years and childcare settings in a number of ways. Early years and childcare providers can receive support from our inclusion specialist teams to enable them to fully include children with additional needs. You can find out more about funding opportunities,the support available to parents of children with additional needs and view our useful resources for inclusion booklets and leaflets.
