Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Throughout the directory, you will see a green triangle with SEND ü, this means that the provider has given information on how they support children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities. Activities listed without a green triangle are universal services, which are available to all children. You will need to contact each provider to see how they can support your child's individual needs.
