NDNA recognises the challenges settings can face with supporting Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
The latest EYFS Profile results showed that children with SEN need more support in the early years - just 24% of pupils with SEN achieved a good level of development in 2017/18; this is 53% lower than pupils without SEN (77%).
NDNA's SEND Champions programme will help to build the confidence and skills of your practitioners in SEND provision:
- Includes structured activities and online training
- It is led by your 'Champion' member of staff
- Builds your practitioners' confidence in SEND provision, to further support children with additional needs at your setting
- It is initially a year-long programme, with the option to extend.
Note: this programme is relevant for England-only settings.
