Best Practice Guidance

Introducing the updated Best Practice Guidance for the Early Years.

The document has two purposes:

  • The opportunity to evaluate inclusive practice in general
  • The identification of specific strategies that can be used to support individual children or groups of children.

The Best Practice Guidance (BPG) is for all early years providers and practitioners working with young children. The document provides an overview of the underpinning knowledge and understanding required to meet the needs of all children at universal, targeted and personalised levels.

The BPG document should be read in conjunction with the SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 (2015) and also sits alongside and complements the ‘Mainstream Core Standards for all Learners’ document for mainstream schools. It has been developed utilising the knowledge and expertise of the Specialist Teaching and Learning Service for Early Years (STLS), Early Years and Childcare Advisers and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCo) in early years settings.
