Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

We work closely with families and external agencies to identify any additional needs children may have. We use tools such as ECAT / ECAM to and Leauven Scales to support our assessments. As a small setting we are ideally placed to identify and cater for individual needs. 

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

We work closely with each child's family to get a good picture of their interest and needs before joining our setting and continue this when the child joins us. We identify each child's strengths, interests and areas for development through our close relationships with each child and our very high adult to child ratios, which enable us to know each child personally and plan for their interests well. We track their development and use formative and summative assessments (termly). Where necessary we provide IEPs for any children needing extra support and will work closely with external agencies where relevant. 


Links we have to other agencies

When necessary we work with agencies such as Speech and Language, Health Visitors and our area SENCO representative. 

How we support children transferring to school

Primarily we support children to develop confidence, resilience, and the independence and skills needed to transfer to school. We link with local schools and ensure children are familiar with their new setting, including inviting teachers into our setting and arranging visits. 


Specialist skills or training our staff have

We have a highly qualified small team. Our setting is managed by a qualified teacher with 15 year experience working in primary and early years settings. Other team members, one of whom is also an experience Early Years Teacher, have particular skills in emotional and behavioural issues, including a post qualifying diploma in Child and Adolescent Counselling and experience in Play Therapy. All our staff receive First Aid and Safeguarding training. 2 members of staff are Level 3 Forest School Leaders.

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

We offer individual support for each child we care for, based on their needs. 

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We work closely with parents and feedback informally, through parents evenings, our private facebook page, learning journeys and sharing our tracking and monitoring. 

Our complaints policy

We have a full complaints policy with a clear procedure. OFSTED would be informed of any serious complaint. 


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

Our site is accessed across a meadow, therefore wheelchair access can be challenging. 

Facilities we have for personal care

We have spacious composting toilets and nappy changing area. 

Specialist resources we have

Our unique site offers a variety of natural, sensory resources. Our high adult to child ratios also mean that we have plentiful time for each child. 

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We ensure all our activities are inclusive.
