RHOSEY- Rodney House Outreach Service for Early Years 


Rodney House provides a valuable outreach service to families and settings of children aged 0-5 across the city. 

At Rodney House we have an outreach team made up of teachers and family workers. 

The RHOSEY Outreach for Settings role is to work with practitioners from Early Years settings throughout Manchester in an outreach capacity, offering advice and support in their work with children who have been identified as having additional needs. 

The RHOSEY Outreach for Families team work with families who have a child aged between 0-5 years old not in a setting who meet referral criteria. 

Together we offer training to practitioners in Early Years Settings and School Nurseries in areas such as:

  • Working with children with SEND
  • The role of the SENCO
  • Introduction to Autism
  • Supporting and managing behaviour
  • Supporting effective communication
  • Working with children with Downs Syndrome 

We deliver termly Early Years SENCO Networks covering a range of topics and updates to support EY SEND practice.

Our service is part of a city wide initiative involving the Primary and High Specialist Support Schools and other specialist provisions.

The service is highly valued throughout the Local Authority as shown by the high demand for the service and the very positive evaluations of work already carried out.
