0-25 Specialist Teaching & Support Service
Social, Communication, Interaction and Learning (SCIL) Team
Early Years (PVI and mainstream settings)
As children return to schools and settings, here are links to information and proforma to support a smooth transition which follows the graduated approach.
These will enable the SENDCo and practitioners to focus on collecting relevant information to help provide effective support for each child.
Referrals for Early Years children
Schools and Private, Voluntary and independent (PVI) settings can now access an early years offer of support for children with SEND in their school or setting by completing a
0- 25 IES referral form
Referrals are considered at monthly triage meetings and may be allocated to either an Early Years Specialist Teacher or Access and Inclusion Officer, with access to a 2 session offer*. *This will include a visit to observe and assess the child’s learning
and development and a written report.
Submission of Early Years referrals
All 0-25 IES Early Years referrals should be submitted via Galaxkey secure email to
Early Years submission dates 2019-20
Referrals received after the given deadline will be submitted to the next Early Years allocation meeting the following month.
Education Advice 1 (EA1) notifications
The monthly panel also receives Education Advice 1 (EA1) notifications from health to notify the local authority that a child may have SEND. EA1s are usually allocated to either an Early Years Specialist Teacher or Access and Inclusion Officer, as appropriate,
with access to a 2 session offer*.
