For NHS colleagues: please note the Early Years SEN Panel referral form provides a process for the following:

  • Notification to the local authority of a child 0-5yrs with SEND: section 1 is to be used for the sole purpose of the NHS fulfilling its legal obligation under section 23 of Children and Families Act 2014 to notify the local authority of a child 0-5yrs with SEND. This notification will result in the child’s details being added to the council’s children's services database.
  • Referral to early years SEN support services: sections 1 and 2 of the form should be completed if NHS colleagues wish then to make a referral to a specialist service within Early Years SEND. This will also be considered a notification to the LA.
