  1. How does the setting know if children need extra help and what should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs? 

We work with parents to find out all we can about their child and use this information to help the children reach their developmental milestones.

We have very experienced practitioners who monitor and assess your child’s development each day with tracking done on each child once a term. If you or the practitioners feel that there may be concerns around your child’s development some additional support to the child within the setting and parents will be signposted to other agencies and additional advice given to the parents.

How will the staff in the setting support my child? 

The staff will be able to support your child as it is a priority to get to know them individually and use their interests to help their development. You and your child’s key person will agree on targets for a play plan and these targets will be supported every day within the setting. Daily feedback will be given to you and play plans reviewed as needed.

Staff will share development files and ask for parental contributions as well as sharing stay and play sessions.

  Staff have already got a wealth of experience and training around differing SEN needs, we also have access to the school SENCO and are able to access any training as required to meet the needs of your child.

How will the curriculum be matched to my child's needs? 

All planning is personalised and the curriculum will be supported by using things that motivate your child to learn.

The curriculum will be adapted to meet the ever changing needs of young children.

What specialist services and expertise can be accessed by the setting? 

We are able to have support from the school SENCO who access consortia, SENNIS, Educational Psychologists and Speech and Language therapists.

 How accessible is the setting? 

The setting is totally accessible even the outdoor play equipment allows children with a mobility need to integrate with peers and face challenge.

How will the setting support my child in transferring to the next stage of education?

We will work closely with the local schools and invite them into the setting and we will visit them.

We will introduce activities into the daily routine to support children to move on.

Children that will be transferring into our school will be taken on visits to the setting and the teacher will visit our setting.

Transition sheets will be filled in to share with your child’s new setting. 

 How are parents involved in the setting? How can I be involved? 

Parents are encouraged to come into the setting from day one. We encourage stay and play and any skills that you may have to be shared within the setting.
