Area Inclusion Coordinators
Area Inclusion Coordinators offer support to private, voluntary and independent early year’s settings and Children's Centre to help develop inclusive practice and plan for children with additional needs. They work in localities and every early year setting has an allocated co-ordinator who will visit the setting.
Every early years setting has a named Inclusion Co-ordinator and the Area Inclusion Coordinators work closely with this practitioner to remove barriers to inclusion and help ensure that all children are fully included in the day-to-day activities in their setting.
There is a particular focus on the most vulnerable children and the Area Inclusion Coordinators support settings to work closely with parents to identify children’s needs, plan interventions to address those needs and review children’s progress. Area Inclusion Coordinators support transition planning for children with additional needs.
