Calderdale Portage and Early Years Support Teachers' Service

Home and setting based service run by Children and Young People's Services for pre-school children who need more time and support to learn basic skills during their early years. Some children may have a specific condition such as Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy or autistic spectrum disorder problems whilst for others there may be no specific diagnosis. Portage aims to work with families to enable them to learn new skills which will encourage their child development. Activities are play based and designed to be fun. The pre-school support service also provides outreach support to early years settings. PEEPs groups take place at various venues throughout the district - please ring for your nearest group.

Specialist support for teachers and support assistants in schools and settings for children with SEND. This team allocates the Priority Nursey Place provision.
