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?

I share good practise with parents including their child's Learning Journals on a regular basis.

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

I will help you support your child's learning and development by sharing with you their learning development file and also activities to help them reach their goals.

How do you meet a child’s educational needs?

By constantly updating their files and planning to meet their next steps.

How do we know my child is achieving agreed outcomes?

My husband is my only staff and he only spends time as my assistant when needed for bad weather, he is informed if necessary of any needs children have that will be left in his care.
