SEN & Inclusion

At St Paul’s Preschool Playgroup we welcome children with special educational needs (SEN) as part of our community.  On this page you will find our SEN information report, guidance on the new code of practice 2014 reforms and useful guidance and information.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO)

At St Paul’s Preschool Playgroup our Special Educational Needs Inclusion Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Rachel Wiggins. She has a wealth of experience of working with children with additional needs and is responsible for the day-to-day provision for children attending our early years setting with SEN and works together with the key workers to maintain and oversee all records for children with SEN.
