SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES (SEND)

The research finding of the Effective Provision of Pre-school Education (EPPE) Project concluded that pre-school can be an effective intervention for reducing SEN, especially for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children.Therefore, in the early years sector in Bristol we need to make sure support is available for all settings that cater for these children, to make sure  all children are given the opportunities to reach their full potential and achieve improved outcomes.

Our vision is to provide a seamless process that is clear and transparent and understood by all professionals and practitioners working with young children.

This is to make sure all children are given the opportunities to reach their full potential in the early years and in later education achieving improved outcomes, which will reduce the underachievement gap.
