Latest update for early years settings - 12 June

dan barton

Dear All,

Thank you once again for your incredible work with your children and families throughout another highly demanding week. We recognise the complexity of what you are doing – adapting your provision in a way that is completely unprecedented, whilst also seeking to maintain consistency and excellence for the children within your settings.

I hope that the coming weekend will go some way towards providing you with a much needed opportunity to fully rest and recharge.

Take care,

Dan Barton, Assistant Director - Education and Skills
Cumbria County Council

Supporting transition for children with SEND

The Early Years team are continuing to work to support children with SEND and the Area SENCOs are available to advise and support you with any children who are part of your setting or who are due to transition to school in September.

Here is a reminder that the transition to school documents contain an additional template for children with SEND and there are many other ideas to support children through transition on our website.

NASEN are offering a free webinar for schools and settings to support transition back for children with SEND.

There are also some lovely ideas for an easier transition back into settings for all children in this article by Famly.
