Please note the new time: the advice line operates weekly on a Wednesday between the new time of 3pn to 6pm, offering childminders, private, voluntary or independent (PVI) and schools the opportunity to speak with an Area SENCO.
The advice line is aimed at supporting providers with general queries about referrals, including signposting the setting SENCO to available resources and offering a general range of strategies and support.
