- How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?
I work alone, l work closely and give continuous care to all children, building self-confidence and positive self-esteem. I support children by working closely with yourself and any other professionals who may be involved with your child's care/development. I assist you to support your child with ongoing assessments/development and ask you to complete an 'All About Me' form which focuses on your child's strengths, home life, interests and language.
- How will the curriculum be matched to my child's/young person's needs?
Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is used as a guide to your child's development. All planning is based around your child's own strengths, needs, interests and preferences, using observations as a starting point to assess their own level, and is tailored to your child's individual developmental needs, rather than their age, as your child is their own unique person.
- How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?
Each child has their own individual needs, observing them during play/activities, l can evaluate their needs to take learning/development forward. If there are concerns, these will be discussed with you on a regular basis and support given to you and your child. If more support and advice is needed, with your permission, l would contact Professional Association of Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) and other relevant professionals. We can work together for the benefit of your child.
- What support will there be for my child's/young person's overall well being?
Your child's overall well-being whilst in mu care is my responsibility, ensuring that they are secure and safe, both physically and emotuionally, building their self-confidence and self-esteem. I risk assess continually inside my home and on outside visits. I am paediatric first aid trained, which l re-take every 3 years. I am level 3 safeguarding trained which is updated every 3 years. Myself, husband and 3 sons have all been checked by Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) which is now know as Disclosure, Barring Service (DBS). I have a full range of policies including Safeguarding, Risk Assessments, Equal Opportunities and others, these are reviewed/updated regularly. Photographic devices are not used unless l have written permission/consent to do so. I am registered with the Information Com missioners Office (ICO)
- What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the setting/school/college?
can access further expertise from my Professional Association Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) coordinator, local authority or seek advice from other specific professionals. I will follow other professionals advice to assist with progress for your child. A family member is a Play Therapist with experience and expertise and l have a strong network/support from other childminders.
- What training have the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had? Are any being trained currently?
Training is undertaken on a regular basis and when the need arises, to ensure my professional knowledge and personal development is continued. I am more than happy/willing to work closely with parents/carers and any involved outside agencies to learn specific skills to support children with specific additional needs. I worked in a school for children with additional needs. I have a level 3 Diploma for Children and Young Peoples Workforce. I am First Aid Trained.
- How will my child/young person be included in activities outside this classroom including school trips?
>I operate an inclusive setting/service and this is extended to all activities both in and out of my setting. If l am undertaking an excursion l will seek your advice as you will have up-to-date and relevant knowledge/information about your child's requirements/needs. All/any trips/excursions are risk assessed, considering all children in my care, and your child's needs are accounted for.
- How accessible is the setting/school/college environment?
I work from home in a terraced house. I have off road parking. There is a small step up to my front door. I have a step down into the conservatory and a step over the door threshold into the garden, these could be adapted. I have downstairs toilet facilities. My garden is secure and mostly paving slabbed with a small step to decking. I have no wheelchair access.
- How will the setting/school/college prepare and support my child/young person to join the setting/school/college or the next stage of education and life?
Children and families are asked to attend settling in sessions before they start, This gives an opportunity for parents/carers to meet me and for me to get to know the child, creating a good environment for the future. Some sessions will be with the child alone, giving me an opportunity to form a bond, and to meet the other children l care for, also to meet my other family members. Children moving onto pre-school/school/other settings are supported in the same way.
- How are the setting's/school's/college's resources allocated and matched to children's/young people's special educational needs?
In my setting l can provide Government funded early years education places for eligible 2 year olds, also all 3 and 4 year olds. [https://www.gov.uk/free-early-eduction (https://www.gov.uk/free-early-eduction)].This is a maximum of 15hours per term week. Additional funding can be claimed for children with additional educational needs. I will work in partnership with you and your family to identify and obtain any specialist equipment and resources as required.
- How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child/young person will receive?
A decision is made about how much and the type of support your child receives/requires following discussions with you the parent/carer, othder professionals, and after observations and assessments that myself and other practitioners/professional undertake, Additional information could also come from the 2 year check, where age appropriate. If further advice is required l will with your permission contact Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) coordinator or the Early Years Team.
- How are parents involved in the setting/school/college? How can I be involved?
Parents/carers will continually involved and consulted about their child's development/learning and well being. You will be kept up to date with their progress and care. A daily diary will be used which is a two way communication between yourself and me, Joint working with and alongside parents is always mutually respected and beneficial, especially for your child.
