Team overview

The 0-25 SEND Team sits within Children and Young People’s Specialist Services. The role of the team is to support children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), and their families, to access the support they need.

The 0-25 SEND Team incorporates three specific team roles; the whole team work together to support children and young people with SEND from birth to 25.

The team is made up of Intensive Family Coordinators, Family Coordinators, Family Coordinators (Portage) and SEND Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Officers, who provide a key role to families of children and young people with an EHCP who require support relating to the child's special educational needs and disabilities. This support is often provided alongside other partner agencies.

The team operates across the whole of the East Riding and is split into three geographic areas: North, East and West. Each geographic area is line- managed by an Intensive Family Coordinator and is made up of four Family Coordinators, one Portage practitioner and one SEND Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) officer.

Intensive Family Coordinators

There are three Intensive Family Coordinators within the team. The Intensive Family Coordinators (IFCs) line-manage staff in each of the three geographic areas and provide case supervision. IFCs represent the team at higher level meetings and may also hold a small number of complex cases. IFCs use their extensive skills and experience to facilitate peer supervision within the team.

Family Coordinators

To access support from a family coordinator, a child or young person will have undergone an Education, Health and Care needs assessment for SEND and hold an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

The role of the family coordinator is to coordinate services and practitioners around the child/young person and their family. Their support can include, but is not limited to: 

  • Coordinating guidance and support regarding the child/young person’s educational placement and provision within their EHCP
  • Provide signposting and support for families of children/young people with an EHCP who have recently moved into the East Riding of Yorkshire or who are unfamiliar with services that are available within their area
  • To attend Team Around the Family (TAF) meetings for children and young people with an EHCP if there are concerns that additional specialist support and guidance may be required for the family
  • Provide support and guidance regarding the review of the EHCP, for example by attending the annual review alongside the family
  • Offer guidance and support should there be concerns regarding the child/young person’s educational placement
  • Chairing multi-agency and TAF meetings for families who are supported by our team to ensure that there all services are being coordinated and that outcomes are regularly reviewed
  • Working closely with other teams and services, both within the local authority, such as social care, early help and prevention, SENDART and SENDIASS and outside of the local authority, such as individual settings, neurodiversity services, CAMHS, charities and support groups to ensure that our children and young people are provided with all of the support that they require to meet their needs.

For children and young people who have an assessed social care need, we collaborate closely with professionals within social care to set-up, monitor and review packages of support.

For all referrals that are accepted by the 0-25 SEND Team, the allocated family coordinator will develop an action plan with the family to ensure that their involvement is outcome-focused and is working to empower children/young people and their parents and carers. This action plan will be shared with families and regularly reviewed.

Family Coordinators (Portage)

Portage is a home visiting early educational service for families who have a baby or young child (0-5 years) with additional needs. Portage workers work in partnership with parents to help them to teach their child new skills using a range of techniques that are known to work well for children with additional needs.

Portage helps children who have significant delays in their development. Children do not need a diagnosis or an EHCP to access Portage.

Portage groups bring together a small number of children with a parent/carer to develop their social skills and provide an opportunity for the adults to meet with other parents/carers to share experiences and provide mutual support. Groups are accessed by invitation only and take place at Children’s Centres across the East Riding. Furthermore, Portage workers do not work alone with a child; the success of Portage is dependent on collaborating with parents to promote the child’s development. Portage sessions that allow the parent and their child with an additional need to be the focus are likely to be more successful; however, siblings will always be included both at home and at Portage groups.

East Riding Portage Service is registered with the National Portage Association and fulfils all the criteria required for registration. All Portage workers have (as a minimum) a qualification that is equivalent to a Level 3 Diploma for the Children & Young People's Workforce (Early Learning & Childcare). All Portage workers and volunteers have completed a Basic Portage Workshop. In addition, Portage workers have received training in signing and a range of approaches that are used specifically for supporting children with additional needs.

Requests for Portage support are made through the East Riding of Yorkshire Early Years Support Team. For more information and to download a referral form visit the Early Years Support page.

SEND Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Officers

To access support from a SEND IAG officer, a child or young person will have undergone an Education, Health and Care needs assessment for SEND and hold an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

The role of the SEND IAG is specifically around supporting children/young people and the families with regards to post-16 education: 

  • SEND IAGs provide children/young people and their families with specialist SEND-specific information, advice and guidance on educational choices post-16
  • They work with educational settings to provide specialist SEND-specific information, advice and guidance on educational choices post-16
  • Provide support for children/young people to prepare for adult life with a focus on enabling young people to be happy and active members of their community with the greatest level of independence. 

To receive support from a SEND IAG officer, it is expected that, where applicable, a child or young person will have received careers advice and guidance from a professional within their setting at first. Our SEND IAG officers work closely with all settings with East Riding students on-roll and posses a wealth of knowledge regarding post-16 educational opportunities that are available for children and young people with SEND.

Who does the 0-25 SEND team work with?

To provide effective and timely support to children/young people and their families, the 0-25 SEND team work closely with a wide range of educational settings and other SEND services, including the Special Education Needs Assessment and Review Team (SENDART), the Children’s Disability Social Work team, neurodiversity services, the Designated Continuing Health Care Officer and the Strategic Lead Nurse for complex cases.

The Children’s Disability Social Work team is a specialist service within Children and Young People, Safeguarding and Support, with a remit to work with children and young people with severe and complex needs and disabilities and their families. These children and young people often require an integrated approach across health, education and social care and may require long-term support from the Children’s Disability Social Work team throughout their childhood and into adulthood. The 0-25 SEND Team also work closely with Futures+ to ensure that young people transitioning to adulthood (post-18) receive the support that they require

The 0-25 SEND team are here to support children, young people and their families throughout the period that a child or young person is in receipt of an EHCP. There will be occasions where our involvement ends or is reduced due to completed action plans and the sufficient empowering of families, however, we are always open and receptive of re-referrals into our team, including from families who have received support from our service historically. We would encourage anyone who feels that they would benefit from support to contact the team at any time.

How can I make a referral to the 0-25 SEND Team?
