Special Educational Needs Department (SEND)

As part of Rainbow’s policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special needs a child may have.

The setting works to the requirements of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice 0 to 25 years (2015).

We have close partnerships with local Health Visitors, Social Workers, Speech and Language Therapists, Early Years Special Education Inclusion Teachers and other healthcare professionals.

If your child has additional needs then we shall endeavour to help them integrate, access and achieve at Rainbow. A SEN plan shall be completed in partnership with parents, the SENCO and Key Person with regular reviews.

All staff have attended Autism training and Speech and Language Training.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Paula Clifton
