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

I aim to work in partnership with parents to help children to be confident and to learn to keep themselves safe. I have clear policies and procedures so everybody knows what to expect. I plan activities around each child’s interests and keep parents informed of all progress. Wherever possible attend workshops and training courses to keep up to date with current legalisation. Partnership with parents and good communication will help identify if any addition needs support may be required. Support may be requested from Hampshire Portage Service, our point of contact to support children with additional support needs within Hampshire. Parents/Carers are also signposted to our local Children’s Family Centre who can offer extra support to families regarding speech and language, form filling etc.

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

The areas of learning and development will be tailored to meet your child’s interests and abilities. An activity involving your child’s interests will sometimes cover all areas of learning, therefor its vital to keep sharing information and interests, working in partnership with parents and other carers ( if any ) can only complement your child’s learning journey.

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?

Children’s learning journals will be sent home towards the end of each term. Termly assessments will be filled in with an area for parent’s comments etc. Ideas for next steps and activities will be passed on to you as well as any other information that may be useful. Information sharing is key in providing suitable activities and will help with the planning of activities.

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

As a registered childcare provider, I am governed to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, this document sets out how we must work, and the rules and regulations that all childcares providing early years education must follow. Categories include safeguarding and inclusion. Risk assessments are carried out and appropriate permission forms are filled in prior to participating in certain activities. I follow the required procedure for exclusions in the event a child has been unwell, further information can be found under my policy and procedures section on file.

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

have completed the level 3 diploma in Young person’s workforce, along with the level 3 supporting teaching in schools diploma. I have attended various workshops and webinars. I attend and have a lot of contact with the local children’s centre, where a wealth of information can be accessed. I have had safeguarding training, as well as first aid and food hygiene.

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

I recently attended the supporting 2 year olds conference, where they provided a couple of workshops and information from the website “I can”. I hope to attend some more training specialising in SEN.

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

>I offer a full schedule of activities and outings, I am out most days. We visit music and dance, drama sessions, the local library, toddler groups, the leisure centre for soft play, anything and everything I think your child will enjoy or shows any interest in.

How accessible is the setting/school/college environment?

I have a driveway which is clear in the mornings should you wish to park right next to the front door. After returning from outings, sometimes we enter the house by going through the back gate, if we are going straight into the garden. I do not however have any ramps for the use of wheelchairs and unfortunately the bathroom is on the first floor.

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 taster sessions, and request at least two visits to my setting with a parent, so I can gather as much information as possible about your child. I inform parents of some activities that occur through the school holidays and sometimes meet up with them so the children can observe good relations between myself and parents. I am available for a pre-school or school if they wish to observe the child in my setting when the time comes for the child to move on to a setting. Learning journals are given to parents when the child moves on and parents are encouraged to contribute to learning journals as often as possible.

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

I am registered to provide government funded sessions for children aged 3 and 4 years, please ask me for details.

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

Via discussion with parents and from other outside agencies. Together we will discuss what support would be appropriate for your child's needs. This is where the observations and tracking of Your child’s progress and the 2 year check will be used to gather evidence required to support Your child to reach their developmental milestones.

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

You are involved by sharing information with me, from what your child has been up to over the weekend, what are your child’s interests, what you think they could use some support with etc. Any pictures or wow or milestone moments will be placed in Your child’s learning journal and together we will create an overview into your child’s time and journey in my setting.
