Support in the early years

28 February 2020

Our multi-agency early years  SEND panel meets monthly and consists of the early start lead for SEND , the lead for communication and language, an early start hub manager, and health visitors who all focus on supporting children with  SEND with a member of the children’s disability team at Cheshire East Council.

The panel receives notifications from health colleagues who have a duty to inform Cheshire East Council of children who they consider to have additional needs.

Funding applications for  SEN inclusion grant and children’s equipment fund are considered at this panel too. Children with  SEND who are not in a nursery but whose parents wish them to attend are discussed at the panel and a support package is tailored to meet their needs.
