Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
We have a strong key person system that ensures staff build strong relationships with their key children and families. We believe that children need to feel safe and secure to thrive and achieve this through children forming strong bonds with the staff. This also helps us to identify areas in which children may require extra support and with their families decide how we best achieve this.
Our Deputy Manager and Manager are Early Years Graduates, the Manager also has Early Years Professional Status.
Both have knowledge and experience is Special Educational Needs and have in the past worked closely with the area SENCO team, as well as the local Speech Therapy team, who are there to advise and discuss any problems before, during and after referral of a child. Both regularly access training to keep updated and widen their knowledge.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
We use Tapestry to record observations on each child, these are linked to the EYFS. Parents are able to access Tapestry from home to view their child's observations, record their own observations and generally communicate with their child's key person. Any concerns are discussed with the child's parents/ carers to help us support the child in the most appropriate way. Staff are available to talk to parents in person or on the phone to discuss any issues. Close working relationships with the area SENCO team help us support children as best as we can.
We happily work with other teams who support children with specific needs such as the Vision Support Team, Speech Therapist or Educational Psychologist.
- Links we have to other agencies
We work closely with the inclusion team. Our SENCO's attend SENCO network meetings to keep updated on recent developments. We have in the past worked with Speech Therapists, Educational Psychologists and the Vision Support Team.
- How we support children transferring to school
Transition for us begins in the autumn term before children start school. We aim to make the move to the reception class as smooth as possible for the children by ensuring that children are ready to learn, can follow a routine, have good communication and personal, social and emotional skills to deal with the change to school.
We write to all Primary Schools that the children are moving to and invite the class teachers to visit Jumblies. The child's key person is available for a chat with the teacher and to introduce the child. Following our parents evening in July, we post the children's summative reports to the school (with parents permission). The children moving on to school spend time talking about this, looking at pictures of their new uniforms etc in the last half term. Feedback from local schools, especially regarding children's readiness to learn (Social, Emotional and Personal Development) was excellent.
We have not been able to have teachers visits this year, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We have spoken to teachers on the phone, have transferred Learning Journals and have familiarized the children with their new school using photographs sent by the teachers and school prospectuses.
