Graduated Approach to Inclusion for Early Years - SENCO Guide

The Plymouth Graduated Approach to Inclusion Framework for Early Years 0-5 should be used as a tool to support all staff in identifying, assessing, and recording the needs of children  requiring additional or special educational provision. This framework is designed to support the identification, planning, and recording of appropriate support and provides guidance for reviewing progress.

The framework provides a structure to enable effective use of Plymouth's Local Offer.  The Local Offer provides children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities, families, and professionals with information in one place, helping them to understand what services they can expect from a range of local agencies (including their entitlements). The Local Offer covers provision for children and young people from birth to 25 and includes information about education, health, and social care services.
