How does the setting/school/college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?

Through observation and assessment, we are able to identify any special educational needs. We have 2 trained SENCO who will be able to support you as a parent and make referrals to the appropriate outside agencies.  

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

The Key person and the setting’s SENCO will work together with the child. All staff will be aware of any additional help and support that may be needed, and what strategies are in place. We are a small team of 4 practitioners who get to know all the children really well  and build secure relationships with both parents and children

We plan for the child through observations, knowledge of the child, strategies that are in place, Individual education plans and their interests.

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?

We will keep parent’s informed by conversation, and daily diaries . By observing the children we keep a track of the child’s progress, we are available to talk to and can arrange meetings with parents as and when required. We use online tapestry  for parents to view their progress within the setting and parents are asked to share their child's learning at home 

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

All staff are first aid trained, children take part in small group and 1:1 work. Medical forms need to be completed and staff will administer general medicine. Any other medical needs we would access training for staff to be able to administer. We accept children that are in nappies and being toilet trained and offer support to parents if they need it. We  contact parents if there is poor attendance, to keep the line of communication open and offer support.

We do a risk assessment and a trial run to the destination to ensure it is suitable for all the children in the setting and where possible change or adapt it if necessary.

The setting is on one level with double doors to outside; there is a large toilet for wheelchair users. The outside has a tarmac area which is accessible  and a grass area which is accessible but uneven . The door ways are wide for wheelchair access.
