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.
