Early years and primary inclusion
The Early Years and Primary Inclusion team supports children aged 2-11 years who are school age or attending a government funded early years setting.
As part of the 0-25 Inclusion and Outreach model, the team provides:
- support, advice and guidance to staff in Early Years Settings and Schools to help them to include children successfully in the parents/carers’ preferred setting
- direct support for children in those settings
- planning for smooth transition from one setting to another
- where appropriate, children can be considered for places in a more specialist educational setting
When schools or EY settings have concerns about successfully including a child in their setting they can request support directly from their allocated Inclusion Officer. If more extensive direct work is required this can be accessed via referral to the multi-agency Inclusion Triage panel.
The Early Years and Primary Inclusion team includes the EYPI manager, Senior Inclusion Officer, Inclusion Officers and Outreach Practitioners. The team works in close partnership with Local Authority Specialist Teachers for Autism and Social Emotional and Mental Health and the Secondary and Post 16 Inclusion Team.
Park End Primary School’s Inclusion officer is Rachael Lavender.
If you think your child would benefit from support from the team, please speak to Miss Rennison or Miss Deakin.
