At Dingley’s Promise we strive to provide the best start for every child.

We support children in the early years with special educational needs and disabilities to achieve their full potential.

We aim to:

  • Seek excellence in our specialist early years intervention
  • Develop a greater inclusion movement and enable more children to
    access mainstream settings
  • Help families to access the appropriate support services for
    their child’s needs
  • Ensure every child transitions into the best educational
    setting for them

Delivering life changing support to children through:

  • Commitment to make sure that every child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is given an equal opportunity so that they can develop and thrive, regardless of their perceived ability.
  • Work in our specialist centres, where we deliver ‘Learning Through Play’ sessions. These are tailored to each individual child’s needs, to give them the best start.
  • Collaborative work with families and other professionals. This gives children the best chance of achieving their potential and be ready to move on to the next stage of their education.

Providing information, support and guidance to families through:

  • Offering a range of individual and group activities through our Family Support Programme, in the aim to reduce isolation and uncertainty.
  • Establishing links to new families and offering guidance to access vital early interventions.
  • Holiday play schemes for children with SEND and their siblings, which provide vital respite for parents and carers and crucial continuity for children.

Sharing knowledge to build wider inclusion in the early years through:

  • Our nationwide training courses help develop the skills and confidence of early years professionals and creates a more inclusive sector.
  • Consultancy with local authorities, which supports their planning and delivery of strategies in the early years, alongside sharing best practice with specialist early years providers to encourage better interaction with mainstream services.
  • Our commitment to ensuring that the voice of children with SEND in their early years is heard by decision makers at a local and national level.
