Welcome to the Barnet Early Years Settings’ Website


  • SENCO Handbook.
    In this section you will find all the documentation and proforma you need to fulfil your role as SENCO.  There is guidance to help you to know what to do when you feel a child may be experiencing difficulties (‘The Graduated Approach’) plus all the observation formats and referral forms you may need
  • Barnet Early Years SENCO Toolkit
    The documents in this section are intended to support you in your role as setting SENCO. The SENCO TOOLKIT contains ideas and guides for various aspects of your role from explaining what a setting SENCO does, how to advise and support your colleagues in helping children to learn, meeting with parents when you have concerns and many others.
  • All The Tens
    In this section you will find a series of guides to support you in helping children.  Each one has ten points and so is an easily accessible resource for you to print off and have available for all staff.
  • EHCP Applications
    This section includes information on making an EY EHCP Assessment Request and out of borough EHCP assessment request applications.
  • Additional Guidance
    This section includes information on specific conditions such as Hearing Impairment, Sensory Processing and other topics which will be of use to you in your role.
  • First Steps - Transition into Early Years Setting
    Good transitions are crucial in enabling children to settle into your setting and make progress.  ‘First Steps’ offers a wealth of information to help you to support the child and their family make a successful start at your setting.  In particular, SENCOs should look at pages 12 – 15 which relate to gathering information on any existing Special Educational Needs and Disabilities the child may have prior to starting with you.
  • One More Step - Transition into School Setting
    This is where you will find advice, information and guidance on how to help children in your setting make the next transition into school.  Again, SENCOs should look at pages 12 – 14.  Although children start school in September, the transition process starts in the September of the previous year and this document will help guide you successfully through the process.
  • Useful Web Links
    As the title suggests you will find links to useful sites such as Barnet Mencap, Universal Plus, Autism Education Trust, EYFS Statutory Framework and many more.

    The ‘PIT Training Booking form’ can be found here.
  • New - Video Resources
    We have put together a collection of useful resources to use within your setting
  • Makaton
    Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. The use of visual supports is often crucial in helping children to develop an effective means of communicating with those around them.  Makaton is used by many children and in this section you can find the link to the Makaton website, information on Makaton Friendly criteria and our Makaton Monthly newsletter.
