SEND Provision Map


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone have a template for a provision map that they could share with me ?

 

I have been asked to send a copy of our Provision Map to our SEND team, but i cannot find one :unsure:

 

I don't even know what should be included on one ! should it be specific to the child with SEND or is it a setting as a whole and how we support all the children with SEND.

 

I am going round in circles trying to google it and have also looked on Lancashire's website with no luck, hoping someone on here will know what I am talking about :rolleyes:

 

Thanks, Linda

A provision map is a new term for IEP or a document you use to plan provision for a child with additional needs. It is the document you use to record the "assess, plan, do, review" part of the graduated approach in the SEND Code of Practice.

Both of your links make interesting reading. Is this a regional thing do you know?

 

One thing I did notice is that one of them is quite old 2011/13. They look like a more in-depth 'Local Offer' which we are now required to do since the CoP came in force.

Hi - my understanding is that although the documents are possibly regional in style/format where they have to meet with statutory requirements there should be a commonality of content across regions. I would expect where uniformity of presentation and content is expected by a Local Authority localised guidance and or templates be produced. In answer to the original request replied to here I understand that no guidance/template is available at this point and needs must!! I note what you say about the date of one of the documents however within the Early Years Foundation Stage provision mapping was in place prior to the introduction of new CoP so whilst one of the documents suggested was published prior to the new CoP it will still be of use in the context of producing a provision map. However in light of the fact that the four areas of need as outlined by the CoP have been changed: the 2014 SEND Code of Practice outlines the four areas of special educational need as:Communication and interaction, Cognition and learning, Social, emotional and mental health, Sensory and/or physical - these would need to be reflected in any current provision mapping. ?

In brief - an early years provision map provides an overview of the wave 2 and 3 interventions provided across the EYFS. Originating from the the National Strategies quality first teaching: Wave 1 inclusive quality first teaching, Wave 2 is targeted catch up provision for groups to put children back on course and Wave 3 a deeper intervention offering more personalised solution to be used if Wave 2 hasnt worked.?

Thank you for all the replies. We have all the information for wave 1,2 & 3 so I guess it's a case of writing this info into one document. Not sure why this has never been done before now to be honest. Oh well, best make a start on it

The new code of practice allows everyone to use their own design of documentation. I think it would be very reasonable for you to ask the LA exactly what they mean by these two documents. Just giving you the title they've allocated to them doesn't help you understand what they are asking for.

If they want all settings to use the same formats/titles, they need to issue some sort of guidance or training so you all know what you expected to include in each document.
