Achieving for Children

Early Years Special Educational Needs Inclusion Fund consultation

We are consulting about proposals for implementing changes to the Early Years Special Educational Needs (SEN) Inclusion Fund, which supports children under the age of five with a specific level of SEN.

This consultation seeks views on introducing a consistent system of allocating Early Years SEN Inclusion Funding to providers to support children with SEN in their settings. It also seeks views on whether some two year olds should receive Early Years SEN Inclusion Funding.

The consultation period will run from Monday 3 July to Sunday 30 July 2017.
