The Council for Disabled Children are delighted to invite you to the first of a new series of early years SEN and disability regional action learning sets (ALSs). These new ALSs are part of a new partnership (The Early Years SEND Partnership) to improve access and inclusion in the early years. The programme is funded by the Department for Education and you can find out more about the new partnership on our website:

https://councilfordisabledchildren.org.uk/early-years-send-partnership

The day is designed to support you with the review and development of local plans, which you may have started as part of the earlier CDC project. We will also share information about a significant amount of training designed primarily for settings managers and available across the region.

Please note the following:

If you have any colleagues in your area who did not attend a regional ALSs as part of our earlier project (which CDC ran between Jan 2017 – Mar 2018), but might benefit from being involved, please do forward this invitation to them. We particularly welcome representatives from different services and agencies, including health and social care.

Why attend this Action Learning Set?

  • Celebrate good practice across the region and learn from each other;
  • Review local progress on early years, SEN and disability;
  • Learn about the training being provided by our partners;
  • Learn about additional support that may be available to you in progressing local plans;
  • Take a strategic approach to access and inclusion in the early years.

Key to our success will be the extent to which we can bring together different teams, from education, health and social care, and from each local area. Our goal is a high level of joint attendance at regional workshops and joint action plans to support a strategic approach.

Who should attend?

There are four places available for each local area. It is for each local area to decide who should attend, and we understand that attendance will be partially determined by availability. We would recommend attendance is drawn from:

  • Health, for example, health visitor, therapist, DMO, DCO;
  • Local authority SEN team;
  • Local authority early years team;
  • Early years providers;
  • Social care;
  • Information, Advice and Support Services;
  • Representatives of parents/carers
