Early years ERSA submission dates
22 Jul 2021
As we come to the end of a very busy academic year and approach a new one the early years team would like to update you on the timeline for submission for the Ealing request for statutory assessments in the early years .
The special educational needs assessment service has requested that providers submit requests for statutory assessment across Early years no later than the 17 December 2021 via Gateway. This will enable the local authority to consider requests and determine whether an EHC needs assessment is necessary .
It is vital that this timely process is
- supported by an evidenced based ERSA
- clearly demonstrating how the setting has implemented the graduated approach
- with supporting documentation outlining the interventions implemented i.e provision map
Training, advice and workshops by the early years team can be accessed via Ealing CPD online to guide you on completing an evidence based ERSA as well as other workshops to support you with the process.
Half termly SEND briefings are also an opportunity to meet with other colleagues to share ideas on strong nclusive practice for all children particularly for those on SEN support in your setting.
