Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
We liase carefully with parents/carers on entry to assess a baseline stage of development of all our children. Regular observations are then taken and assessments made termly to ensure all children are making progress. In so doing we can identify early where additional support may be required and plan strategies early. We hold regular review meetings with all parents.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
In addition to the above every child is allocated a key person who will follow their time in preschool recording their development steps. These are carefully recorded and used to inform planning. In so doing all our children's development stage, interests and next steps can be accommodated. Where additional support is required we can deploy staff and resources to meet their needs. All this is done with agreement and review by parents.
- Links we have to other agencies
We can make referrals to health visitors, speech therapy, family support and inclusion team when it is thought necessary and would then work in conjunction with them and the family to best support the child.
- How we support children transferring to school
We work with all our Senior group of children throughout their final year with us, from September to build their confidence with peers and adults and in particular communication and language in readiness for school. During the summer term we have many activities based around transitions. We work with parents and new schools to ensure all are ready to transfer. Primary school teachers are invited to visit the children in setting and we share development information to help the new school understand each unique child and how best to support them.
