Information from the Integrated SEND Team

For key information about supporting children with SEND please visit the specific pages on the Local Offer page Covid-19 SEND Advice for children and Young People.

Every setting will have a named contact. The purpose is to maintain the strong relationships our service has developed within the sector. The Key Contact is the named person for your setting, school, nursery, out of school club or childminder and as such, will be the first point of contact for you. They will be able to offer advice and ensure the correct level of support is offered to you from the Early Years service.

If you wish to contact a member of the Early Years Team please telephone 01296 387111 or email earlyyears@buckinghamshire.gov.uk
