How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?

I will endeavour to always provide a loving, secure,( emotionally and physically ), and cosy, enabling environment in which your child will be treated at all times with respect, dignity and as an individual.

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

Each child's learning journey is individual to that child. We will support each child in their own learning journey through ' child led ' play combined with structured play, as and when required, ensuring we cover the requirements of the EYES. ( I ensure a safe environment for your child to explore and become confident individuals, providing new and interesting, stimulating experiances. Regular observations are taken of your child to support their learning.

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?

I will complete a diary on a daily basis including any star moments, achievements. On a termly basis I will update a learning journal with photos and star achievements and complete an observation which will cover the individual areas of learning. I will also complete a progress check using the tracker sheets tool that cover the EYFS. All this information will be shared with the parent's/carer's and they will be asked for their feedback and if they have any concerns, ideas how we can work together to enable their child to progress. If your child's first language is not English I can use local resources to support them in communication. I can access support and advice from my PACEY ( Professional Association of Childcare and Early Years) co-ordinator, the local Children's Centre and other childcare professionals. All this would be done on a purely confidential basis in line with safeguarding requirements and with parent/carer's permission, involvement.

What support will there be for my child's/young person's overall well being?

I will ensure that I make the transition from home to childcare as smooth as possible. I will endeavour to ensure your child feels valued , secure and comfortable on a daily basis. If any issues arrive I will endeavour to call on my experience within the childcare profession and most importantly my experiences as a Mother. My provision is visually risk assessed at the beginning of each day before any children arrive. I involve the children in checking all toys on a daily basis and encourage them to tell me if breakages occur during play. House rules and behaviour expectations are set out with the parent's and child when they first come to my setting. I am trained and keep up-to-date with all mandatory training ie, Safeguarding, Paediatric 1st Aid, Food Hygiene, Allergy requirements and any training available which will improve the standard of care I can give your child. Me, my husband and son are DBS (CRB) checked. I am regularly checked by OFSTED and adhere to and meet all their requirements. I have a full range of Policies that enable me to care for your child to the best of my ability.

What specialist services and expertise are avaliable at or accessed by the setting/school/college?

have various services and expertise available to me which I can access with the help of fellow professionals. I have experience of speech and language resources available. I have experience of medical resources available due to my extensive service within the NHS. I can call on the help of my local SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) via my PACEY co-ordinator or specific professionals. I can call on the SFYC ( Services for Young Children ) website for advise.

What training have the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had? Are any being trained currently?

I access specific training as and when necessary geared towards a particular child's needs. This also ensures the information is up-to-date at the time it is required. I would call on my knowledge gained over 24 years service as a Care Assistant within the NHS caring for a various needs.

How will my child/young person be included in activities outside this classroom including school trips?

>I ensure a visual risk assessment is conducted of all areas on arrival. I ensure all areas /locations are child friendly, wheelchair/buggy accessible. My local Childminding support group hold a yearly Christmas party and any allergies/requirements are recorded and met. For each individual child I will seek advise and input.

How accessible is the setting/school/college enviroment?

I have a low step to access my front door. I have two steps at my back door to access the garden. My toilet and wash facilities are upstairs on the 1st Floor. My internal doorways are a standard size. I have a small step to access the kitchen. I have a secure and flat rear garden mainly laid to lawn and patio.

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?

I offer all my new parents/carer's to attend a settling in period before they start. This will give the parent's and child the opportunity to meet my family and the other children attending my setting. I ask if the child has a special toy, comforter, song etc. When it is time for the child to join another setting ie pre-school, infant school, I will obtain the parents/carer's permission to visit the setting and share their latest progress check and share with the professionals any little ways particular to that child, this familiarity will enable them to ensure the child feels comfortable and is given the best start thus reducing stress to both child and parent/carer.

How are the setting's/school's/college's resources allocated and matched to children's/young people's special educational needs?

I am an approved E.Y.E., (Early Years Educator) provider. I can provide Government funded education to funded 2yr old's. 3Yr old's and 4year old's. At present this is 15 hours per term week. (https;// Children with special educational needs can access additional funding. With parent's/carer's permission I will use other professionals to access extra equipment, resources which will benefit your child. I will attend regular E.Y.E., provision updates which enables me to keep up to date.

How is the decision made about what type and how much support my child/young person will receive?

Support levels will be decided using the regular progress, observations carried out. I will also use information given by parents to gauge the level and type of support, if I am unsure I will seek advise from fellow professionals specialising in the specific area in question. Next Steps are set out to enable your child to progress.

How are parents involved in the setting/school/college? How can I be involved?

Parents are kept up-to-date with regular progress checks. On a daily basis I will complete a daily diary for each child. This is to be used for two-way-communication. If the diary is not available to me then I will inform the parent of any concerns for that day and also give a quick outline of activities, achievements, time dependant. A newsletter is sent home giving a brief outline of future activities planned each term.
