This course will provide an overview of the current SEND system and provide delegates with an understanding of SEND, the role of the SENCO and the law that exists to protect vulnerable children and ensure that you are providing an inclusive education for all children. The complex network of systems supporting children can make it difficult to see what's important and what change means to each of us.

This is a free half day workshop which will provide basic information, guidance and best practice to assist you in understanding and complying with your statutory premises health and safety requirements.

Whether you own the premises that you run your early years and childcare provision from or rent/lease it from a landlord, the person or organisation registered with Ofsted has a LEGAL DUTY to ensure that their premises are safe, particularly with regards to high risk areas such as Fire, Electricity, Gas, Water Asbestos as well as others. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation stage also states that providers must ensure that their premises are fit for purpose and suitable and that they must comply with requirements of health and safety legislation (including fire safety and hygiene requirements), this is also a requirement under your Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) contract with the Council. In the worst instances, failure to meet these requirements can result in death or injury to premises users, enforcement action from the HSE and/or Ofsted and termination of your contract to deliver FEEE places with the Council.
