Coronavirus (COVID-19): information, advice and frequently asked questions

EYPARM Submit your parent views

UPDATED: Monday 6th April 2020

IMPORTANT: Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic some of the possible outcomes of a referral to the EYPARM cannot be implemented. The SEN Assessment Team will be prioritising children known to the process who are due to start school in September 2020 for suitable action/support. All other current referrals will remain on the referral register and will return to EYPARM process once the social distancing instructions have been lessened or removed. Please note it is most likely this will mean they will be discussed in the Autumn Term.

To enable the Local Authority to prioritise children due to start school this year we would ask that referrals for younger children are not submitted until the new academic year. Existing families whose children were discussed this term or were due to be discussed next term will receive a letter from SENAT shortly explaining the new approach.

It is important that you submit your views to the Early Years Planning And Review Meeting (EYPARM), as we want to ensure that your voice is heard during the discussion about your child. There is a template below which you may wish to use as guidance, however if you would rather contribute your views via email or letter, the SEN Assessment Team welcome this. Please don’t hesitate to contact them using the contact details below.

It is a great idea to send the SEN Assessment Team a picture of your child to accompany their paperwork to help personalise the information.
