Local Offer - Early years & growing up
All early years providers in the maintained, private, voluntary and independent sectors that a local authority funds, are required to have regard to the 0-25 SEND Code of Practice
Early years providers must have arrangements in place to support children with SEN or disabilities. These arrangements should include a clear approach to identifying and responding to SEN. The benefits of early identification are widely recognised – identifying need at the earliest point, and then making effective provision, improves long-term outcomes for children.
Sefton Family Wellbeing Centres in Sefton are supported by Sefton Council's Aiming High for Disabled Children service, providing vital sessions for young children with additional needs.
