In discussing 'The Role of the Early Years SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator)' The DfE make is clear that the intended purpose for the document is for it to be seen as  guidance for early years providers and practitioners to help clarify the role of the Early Years SENCO in non-maintained early years settings.
