The Ministry of Education is undertaking a review of the SELO support programme. SELO support is offered to services, is funded by the Ministry of Education, and aims to help centres in specific areas of their operation. Many services receive a call from a contracted SELO provider as a result of receiving a “2” in an ERO review.
The ECC is aware of the increasing anxiety of parents around their child’s safety following two significant accidents in Auckland over recent days. While we wait to find out the specific details of these accidents and what action, if any, each centre can take to address any widespread risk identified, I felt it might be helpful to some to have a letter template that could easily be modified to make it your own, to hand out to parents or just those that express concern to you.
