- How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?
When children start nursery staff observe their needs. Based on their observations children get different support during group session. At times some children are given one to one support. Staff at our setting work closely with the SENCo who will advise them on strategies and learning programmes to support specific children’s needs. Some children will have an individual educational plan which will enable staff and parents to work in partnership on measurable targets to support the child’s needs and progress. The SENCo will oversee and organise this programme.
- How will the curriculum be matched to my child's/young person's needs?
Our setting has a good development and learning programme which was developed by the early years teacher .We monitor the children’s progress by tracking their development three times a year and also using learning journals to record progress regularly to ensure that learning and development matches age and stage for each child, thus monitoring how the curriculum matches each child’s needs.
- 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?
Our learning and development programme is embedded in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and staff plan for their key children’s development ensuring they meet the requirements of the framework. If there is a concern regarding progress or delay staff will discuss this with the SENCo who in turn will discuss with parents.
- What support will there be for my child's/young person's overall well being?
Our setting is an inclusive setting where all children are valued for who they are. At Littleworld we give our parents a copy of our policies and procedures when they register their child with us. The overall wellbeing and care of the children are of the utmost importance and staff adhere to the safeguarding policy to ensure we support and protect all children in our care. We have specific policies regarding the administration of medicines, staff ratio, safe recruiting and supervision of staff. Ultimately the Manager is responsible to ensure the support for your child’s overall wellbeing is provided whilst in the setting and the Manager is supported by the senior management team in the setting. We adhere to the requirements of the statutory framework and therefore are required by law to ensure the safeguarding and wellbeing of all children in our care. We have a designated person for behaviour management and a lead practitioner who is responsible for child protection issues. Staff are responsible for adhering to the policies and in partnership with parents provide a support network. Staff do have regular training to upgrade their knowledge and development.
- What specialist services and expertise are available at or accessed by the setting/school/college?
Our setting accesses specialist services such as speech and language support and portage outreach support with regards to behavioural issues. We endeavour to work closely with health visitors, social workers, children services and educational psychologists should the need arise. We also work closely with teachers from our feeder schools to ensure a smooth transition into school for our 4-5 year olds. We also work closely with the area inclusion team of Hampshire county council to ensure support to above mentioned services are accessed.
- What training have the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had? Are any being trained currently?
The designated staff member responsible for the children with SEND has completed training which ensures that they are up to date in knowledge and expertise to deal with children who require specialist support. This staff member is responsible for cascading training to all staff in the setting. The child protection officer completed training to ensure up to date knowledge is cascades to all staff. We also have a member of staff designated to ensure equality and inclusiveness is adhered to in the setting.
- How will my child/young person be included in activities outside this classroom including school trips?
>Our setting is an inclusive setting and therefore if the setting engages in outside activities or trips staff will ensure that those who need support will get the correct support they require to meet their individual needs. Risk assessments are carried out beforehand to ensure all activities are accessible for all children, including ensuring access for children with disabilities. If children need one to one support on outings this will be provided for by the setting.
- How accessible is the setting/school/college environment?
Littleworld Nursery has got ramp access for wheelchairs but we can do more to ensure accessibility from the preschool decking to the main garden if needed. This is an area that we need to develop. It is on our action plan to ensure all rooms are accessible for all walk of children.
- 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?
A transition meeting is planned with the school leaver parents and feeding schools and supports transition to the different schools by fostering good relationships with the parents and schools. We also encourage teachers to visit children in the preschool room prior to their transition to school to share information on a personal level between the key person and teachers regarding the progress and development of the children and to share the learning journals. Within the nursery we have arranged visits between rooms before the children move from one room to another.
- How are the setting's/school's/college's resources allocated and matched to children's/young people's special educational needs?
At Littleworld we have three rooms accommodating the different age groups: baby room (0-24 months) toddler room (24-36 months) and the pre-school room (36-60 months) children move between these rooms depending on their age and stage of development. Within these rooms we move children into the next group depending on whether they are developmentally ready. This is always discussed with the parents and the key person in partnership with the room managers.
- How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child/young person will receive?
We endeavour to provide all the support your child needs whilst in our care to progress s and develop to their full potential. If there are any concerns we will discuss these with you as soon as we are aware of any concerns and will seek the appropriate support at our earliest opportunity.
- How are parents involved in the setting/school/college? How can I be involved?
At our setting we have tea parties in the different rooms to which we invite parents to attend. We also teddy bears picnic in the younger children’s room. Parents who can give their time to the nursery are most welcomed. In the past parents have brought in the fire engine for the children to experience what the fire engine can do to help put off the fire.
