Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

When children enter pre school we discuss their development with parents and ask about any concerns. We also offer all children a home visit. After observing and working with each child for a few weeks, targets are set and each child is tracked according to their stage of development and their age. This enables us to clearly identify if a child is not working at the appropriate level and seek advice and help from outside agencies after we have initially put in some intervention.

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

Each child has a key worker who will work with them on a 1 to 1 basis as well as in a group. This person will identify the childs needs and with support from the teacher will plan for their next steps. All staff input into each child's development and we will discuss how best to support each child in staff meetings. Any concerns or successes are share This is shared with parents every half term.

Links we have to other agencies

In the past we have worked with the area SENCO and her team , various speech and language therapists , GPs and consultants , specialist nurses for different conditions , educational psychologists , Autism support workers , Occupational Therapists , Teacher of the deaf ,  EAL team , Family Support workers , Health Visitors.  We would seek to access any agency that would support and develop a child.

How we support children transferring to school

All children transfer to school in different ways. We invite teachers in from each school in the summer term to see and talk about the children. If a child has individual needs not met by the settling the school offers we can offer an enhanced transistion. In the past thos has included taking a child for weekly visits to a school, taking our puppet sprog to visit and making a photo book. Each child is individual and a plan would be made based on their needs.

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

Our pre school is run by an early years teacher who has a wealth of experience and training. Other staff have also been on visuals training, behaviour management training and supporting children with speech and language issues training. All staff have a peadiactric first aid certificate. We also attend regular SEN cluster meetings and locality cluster meetings to keep skills and knowledge up to date.

Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being

If we have concerns about these issues we would first speak to the parents to see what support we could offer. We would then access information for parents from the local health visiting team and/or family support. As a HEY setting we develop the childrens understanding of their wellbeing and emotional needs and support parents through such things as toilet training. We also support parents by running regular evenings about the development of chilren.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

If a child is at SEN support level and has an IEP we would regularly by talking to them about their childs IEP and progress etc. On a more formal basis key worker meetings are held every term. We have a very good relationship with our parents and encourage them to come and talk to us at any opportunity.

Our complaints policy

If a parent has a complaint they should first approach Mrs. Soady. If the problem cannot be solved through this then a letter can be written to the trustees - please see our full complaints policy. All complaints are recorded.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

Our building is all on one level and is fully wheelchair accessible. It is a modern purpose built new build built in 2009. The building is accessible to all.

Facilities we have for personal care

We have a separate accessible toilet area.

Specialist resources we have

We have an accessible toilet area with a higher toilet and bar. We have various sensory toys and have had sensory training.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We aim to go to places that are accessible for all. for example Theatre Royal Plymouth and Pennywell farm. We encourage parents to accompany their child and take any equipment we may need with us.
