Please support our Early Years Campaign
Walsall SERCO are planning to cut vital services to our Childrens Services and various areas are going to be affected. One of those areas is going to be the Early Years services
For e.g The specialist teachers are going to be reduced from 18 teachers down to 8 !!! Quite a cut and we feel this will affect the services our children are going to get

Under the new restructuring of SERCO and education Walsall the early years SEN teaching service is under threat. They plan to drastically reduce numbers of staff which would have a devastating effect on our Team around the child service. As said previously we already know that the specialist support teachers will be reduced from 19 down to 8 staff. This will affect our home school teachers and other areas within the early years services which would impact upon all of our families and children with disabilities in Walsall. As you know the support and help to families from the early years team is vital and particularly around transition into nurseries and schools, help with statutory assessments, paperwork etc.
We need parents to be heard to stop us loosing this vital service and you can help by writing to these 3 people
1.Connie Mergen Head of Early Intervention and Inclusion Services
2.Frank Barnes Assistant Manager Director
3.Tony Stainer Managing Director
