Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support

Initially through our induction process and discussion with parents / carers. All children are tracked using EYFS, Every child a talker and 2 year old progress checks, all children are linked with a key person who will monitor their progress, plan for next steps and review regularly. Some children may required additional support and this may come from place plus funding.

How we identify and support children's learning and development needs

Through staff training - staff have attended Making Sense, Makaton, Portage, Behaviour management and every child a talker training.

Links we have to other agencies

We regularly work with the senior locality Senco, Educational Psychologist, Speech and language therapists, Portage workers, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapist, Family support workers and Early support.

How we support children transferring to school

We have developed great links with Tywardreath School, we have a transition programme in place and this includes the class teachers (from whatever schools) to visit the child(ren) in the setting, sharing the child's learning journeys (with parental permission), taking the children to visit the school for a morning or afternoon, and we also make transition books.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Learning journeys are shared with parents regularly and we often invite parents into the setting to have informal chats through events such as open afternoons, coffee and cake and stay and play. Parents have regular newsletters sent out by email to keep them informed of what's happening within the setting, and we have even offered joint staff / parent training in-house offering safeguarding and food hygiene.
