Early Years SENCo Handbook – Information and
Guidance
Foreword
I am pleased to introduce to you our Early Years SEN Handbook, designed to support all Early years’ Settings in receipt of the Free Entitlement (Nursery Education Grant) to meet their responsibilities under the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2001).

It is designed to complement existing guidance such as the SEN Code of Practice (2001); SEN toolkit and Wiltshire Council’s own Indicators and Provision Document (WIPD) and should be read in conjunction with these documents. This handbook outlines the expectations for inclusive practice in early years’ settings. Further information can be sought from the web references listed under each topic where needed.

This handbook is the property of the Early Years’ setting and a hard copy should always be available for staff to refer to. If further copies are needed there will be a charge. However, the handbook is available online at www.wiltshire.gov.uk. I hope that you find this handbook informative and user-friendly, but if you need any more support please contact your Early Years Inclusion Adviser (EYIA). Angela Everett

It sets out how we will respond to the government’s strategy for supporting children with special educational needs and promote their inclusion. It outlines our vision and informs our working practice.

”Children and young people with special educational needs are a significant part of Wiltshire’s population of vulnerable children.” Our SEN strategy: “sets out Wiltshire Council’s priorities for Special Educational Needs developments.
