The Early Years and Childcare team deal with all work relating to inclusive practice in early years settings. We provide information, advice, guidance, forms and links to support children in your setting and the quality of your inclusive practice.
Contacts to this team should be via email@example.com.
All childcare providers are required to offer an inclusive environment and to respond to individual children’s needs. The Local Offer website has information on specialist and targeted services across education, health and social care in Portsmouth.
Please see the Portsmouth SEND Pathway for Early Years Settings.
