Independent Support Fact Sheet #15: SEN Support_Early Years

Written by Independent SupportDate 18 Aug 2014

Independent Support have produced a series of fact sheets as part of the training provided to Independent Supporters. 

This fact sheet sets out the particular requirements and considerations for SEN support in early years as set out in the SEND Code of Practice. 

Under the current approaches ‘early years action’ and ‘early years action plus’ will be abolished and replaced with a graduated approach to identifying and supporting pupils and students with SEN but who do not require an EHC plan, known as “SEN support”. This document goes on to give the key principles and duties under this new approach.
