- How we make our service inclusive
We display an inclusive policy on the parents noticeboard, access for all needs and disabilities e.g. toilet facilities. All staff attend specialist training, e.g. Makaton, Visual Aids, Special Educational Needs. The building is purpose built with adaptations to cover all disability needs. All parents and children are made welcome, catering for all children's individual needs and requirements in our setting.
- Staff SEND experience
All members of staff have basic Makaton, and are Senco, Safe guarding, and Managing Behaviour trained. The Pre-School Supervisor has worked with other professionals, attended TAC and Early Support Meetings working with Speech and Language Therapists with children who have attended the Pre-School sessions with SEND. Sally McGowan, the manager, runs the group, who have full First Aid certificates, Food hygiene and are aware of specific dietary needs some children may have.
- How our service supports providers / schools / colleges
Managers meet with parents, children and new school providers to provide an easy transition; through meetings or with other professionals working with children with additional needs and requirements. The Keyperson also works with the parents and the child prior to transition. Our setting agrees with parents for information to be shared as part of the transition process.
- Other local or national support
Area Senco's. Early Help Assessment. Specialist advice from other professionals. Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitor, Portage and Educational Psychologists.
- Resolving disagreements, mediation and making complaints
We have a Complaints Policy in place. All parents on starting their child at Pre-School receive a copy. There are clear steps marked in the policy about resolving problems. The first point of contact is to speak to the Supervisor/Manager and most complaints are resolved amicably and informally. If this does not have a satisfactory outcome then there are clear and detailed steps in the policy about making a written complaint, the holding of meetings or referring to mediation.
