Educational, Health & Care (4-16 year olds)

At this critical time in a child or young person’s life there are a number of services offering help or advice to ensure that children & young people have a smooth transition into nursery/childcare, primary school and then secondary school. 

Services that offer educational support


Most children with SEND will attend their local mainstream school, i.e. Knowsley Primary Schools or Knowsley Secondary Schools these links will take you to the relevent section and you will be able to view the individual schools and their SEN information.  If your child has more specialised needs we have some Knowsley Special Schools & the Pre School Portage team who can support your child's education. 

We also have information about Independent/nonmaintained special educational needs schools, that may be based in or outside Knowsley.

If you are over 16 and considering colleges or moving into employment there is information available on our Becoming an Adult section.

Health support for children & young people with SEND

  • Fullerton Grove provides children with disabilities that meet the criteria and their families overnight breaks (Respite).

Please remember to check out the Advice & Support page as you may find links there to more information/services that can help you.
