It is the aspiration of every education system to meet the educational needs of all children so that each has the best start in life. It is the ambition of The London Children’s Practice that every child, regardless of their learning difficulty, reaches their full potential in school and makes a successful transition to adulthood and the world of further and higher education, training or work.

The London Children’s Practice has been working successfully with schools in both the private and state sector for many years. We have extensive experience of working alongside Special Educational Needs Coordinators and other teaching professionals.

We see our SEN packages as a flexible way for SENCOs to manage the SEN needs of their schools through one provider who is answerable directly to them.
