Avoid a local lockdown

Do not make visits to other people's homes or gardens. Restrictions on care home visiting are not being relaxed. Those who are shielding should continue to take extra care.

How do you identify special educational needs and disabilities?

I identify SEND by keeping up to date with SEND training. By talking to parents, children and other professionals to identify needs. By keeping children's development files up to date so I can easily identify any areas of need.

How do you involve parents/carers?

Working in partnership with Parents and Carers, I will share their child’s learning and progress with them, including any area of concern using the Development matters and/or Early Years outcome, and will encourage Parents and Carers to share with me what the child does at home and any area of concern they might have. With the two-way flow of information we are able to give every support necessary for the child’s learning.

How do you support a child’s learning and development?

We would work in partnership with any other professional’s involved i.e. Additional Educational Needs specialist and yourselves in conjunction with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and any other special requirements that your child may need.

How do you meet a child’s educational needs?

Through following the EYFS and areas and stages of a child's development, I can plan activities and source suitable resources for children. Through the observations I do I could see if a child was having any problems.

How do we know my child is achieving agreed outcomes?

Through following the EYFS and areas and stages of a child's development, I can plan activities and source suitable resources for children. Through the observations I do I could see if a child was having any problems.

How do you adapt for a child with extra needs?

My setting is inclusive so all activities and resources provided will be adapted where necessary within the learning environment and made age and developmental stage appropriate.

How accessible is your service, outside and inside?

Children can move between rooms and have access to all toys and resources. If there was a child with a particular need I would ensure space was available for them. I also risk assess daily the indoor and outdoor areas to ensure safety for each child.

How do you involve children in outings and trips?

This is dependent on the child and where we are going. Reasonable adaptations for the trip would be made and additional risk assessments would be carried out. I may also contact the venue and find out about their accessibility (where applicable).

How do you work with other organisations?

I can contact agencies who can help parents with their child and have contact numbers to do so. If agencies wished to see child in my environment I would arrange at a suitable time.

How do you support children when they start and leave?

When a parent requires a place, they do several visits with the child and when I feel the child is ready they will stay on their own. I have a Settling In and Inclusion policy to show how children and their parents are welcomed. When a child comes to leave, we prepare them beforehand and they know they can always keep in touch.

How are you/staff trained in extra needs?

I have attended an extended Senco training course and I keep up to date with my training.

What is your policy on compliments, complaints, concerns?

You are welcome to write a letter of complaint to myself and Ofsted. You can expect to hear back from myself within 28 days regarding the outcome and steps that will be taken. An action plan can then be undertaken.
