Early Years Area SENCOs are advisory teachers with high level of experience of working with young children with special educational needs and their families. We support early years providers to develop effective inclusive practice for children aged 0 to 5.
We provide advice and practical support to Early Years providers about early identification and support for young children with special educational needs and facilitate their transition to compulsory schooling.
Through visits to settings, training and local cluster meetings, we provide initial training and ongoing support the SENCOs in Early Years settings.
Our team works closely with the specialist Early Years Educational Psychologists and other professional colleagues from within Education, Health and Social Care within the “Multi Agency Identification and Support in the Early Years” (MAISEY) process.
We work in partnership with parents/carers through our visits to Early Years settings and multi-agency meetings for individual children, such as Family Service Planning meetings.
We are the designated teachers for Early Years children who are looked after (in care) and we attend Personal Education Plan meetings for children in preschool settings.
All schools, childcare and SEND providers must make their policy and provision for children with
Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is usually published in the
provider's SEN information report. This link takes you to where you can find this provider's
SEN information report.
If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions about the provider's SEN
provision, you should contact the provider directly.
We usually hold some information about a provider's policy and provision and you can find what
we do hold here.
