Children in care

The Early Years Team supports settings with children on roll who are in the care of Devon County Council, whether in or out of county.

Each child has an allocated early years consultant (EYC) who will liaise with the designated teacher in the setting. We work closely with the Devon Virtual School.

The EYC will visit the setting at least twice a year, to discuss the child’s learning and development, and offer support to the setting. Visits are usually face-to-face, but in the current climate may need to be virtual. Additional visits are available for support with SEND.

An EYC will attend PEP meetings whenever possible. Prior to a PEP meeting, the designated teacher should receive a telephone call from the allocated EYC to discuss the child’s current progress and support with the target-setting process.
