Early Years SENCO Liaison Groups

Early Years SENCO Liaison Groups


Hosted by:

BCC Early Years Service SEND Advisors


SENCOs from all from all pre-schools, nurseries, out of school clubs, childminder QIPs, schools and children’s centres delivering the EYFS


10 locality meetings each term


Early Years (EY) SENCO Liaison Groups are free to attend and open to EY SENCOs in settings and schools with EYFS provision in Buckinghamshire. The groups provide an opportunity to share practice and discuss the latest developments in SEND, including the changes implemented in September 2014 following the introduction of the Children and Families Act 2014.

The groups meet on a termly basis at a number of venues across the county. SENCOs can view all available groups and decide which is the most appropriate and convenient one to attend. Groups are run by members of the Early Years Service who have specialisms and expertise in supporting children with additional needs.

SENCO Briefing Events

This term there will be briefings for Early Years SENCOs which will replace the Autumn EY SENCO Liaison groups.           

We are expecting a few changes to the way Child Specific work is organised as well as proposed development following the EY SENDIAN pilot. We will be looking at recent feedback from the EY SENCO liaison groups and will share that and any changes as a result.

Please book your place for the Briefing

These groups are still the main way you can have regular contact with EY SEND Advisors and it is how we share key information throughout the year, your attendance is important and valued by us
