Dear Parents and Carers,

As part of the Governments Early Years National Funding Formula, Local Authorities (LA’s) are required to establish an SEN Inclusion Fundfor 2, 3 and 4 year olds with special educational needs who are accessing their free entitlement. The funds are intended to enable local authorities to work with early years providers to meet the needs of individual children with SEN to support children’s learning and development. National guidance also states LA’s should target the fund at children with “lower level or emerging SEN.”

Local authorities must consult with early years providers to set the value of their local SEN inclusion fund.

We are keen to hear your views. Please return your consultation form by 17 May 2019 to send.tippingst@staffordshire.gov.uk
