Children’s progress is monitored regularly and through transition progress to different rooms, planning is bases on differentiating activities to children current needs and interest. Key people plan by closely observing children and planning effective next steps. Regular play plans are recorded for children requiring additional help. Parents are kept involved with their child's progress if staff realise early intervention is required from outside agencies. The cluster groups provide help with funding and training so children can be helped to reach heir full potential. Portage training taken on by our SENCo and deputy SENCo has been really beneficial in helping identify additional needs or signposting for the best help.
