Early Years SENCO Liaison Groups

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 both locally and nationally.

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.

Information from the groups is added to the website at the end of each term.

SENCO Briefing Events

Last term we held six Early Years SENCO Briefings, instead of our Autumn Term EY SENCO Liaison groups. Thank you to the 182 SENCOs that attended the briefings.   See below for the Briefing presentation which has been updated to reflect some of the discussions and questions from the sessions. Spring SENCO Liaison Groups will not take place this Spring term, but can be booked for the Summer term. A communication will be sent out for the Spring Term.

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.
