Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
With information from parents on entry to the setting we are able to ascertain the level of support a family needs and from there set up an early years care plan to identify additional support. For children already placed at the setting we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and use the development outcomes to track children's development. If any children are not developing within their expected age range we work with parents firstly to identify a plan of support and from there with parents permissions we would refer to the Local Children's Inclusion Team to provide further and more in depth support and guidance for families and the setting. We use the Every Child's A Talker tool kit for tracking children's Language and Communication Skills and again where a possible delay is highlighted we work with parents and local Speech and Language support to further guide the child to narrow any gaps.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
Through using the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance and using the expected outcomes for children we would track individual children's development progress within the 7 areas of development supporting them with developing important skills to help them progress onto School.
- Links we have to other agencies
We work closely with the local Family Inclusion Service, we have a representative of the local Child Development Centre visiting our setting to work with specific children. We have contacts with local Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational therapists, physiotherapist and audiology and the hearing support service and can make referral's on parents behalf's. We work closely with the local Children's Centre signposting parents to upcoming events that are held there.We also access the children centre sensory room where appropriate. We are also members of the Pre-school Learning Alliance who are a National Charity supporting Early Years Providers in their delivery of Childcare.
- How we support children transferring to school
We have strong links with Local Schools in the area and we work together during the transitional period to share observations and information regarding individual children's development, friendship groups etc. For children who require more support with their transition we work closely with schools and professionals to support the individual need of each child, in order to make the transition smoother for the child. With work closely with local School's to take the children on visits and we also visit some of the School's to see how the children have settled in.
Learning and development
- Specialist skills or training our staff have
All our staff are fully trained on the Welfare requirements, recently the manager and Deputy Manager attended Welfare training and cascaded that training back to the whole team. All staff have experience in supporting children with additional needs, and have attended appropriate training including managing behaviour, supporting sensory needs, visual support training.
- Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being
Our practice regularly supports children's health and well-being and we have recently joined the Nipper's programme to further improve the nutrition we provide on a daily basis at the setting.
- Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported
We use an app where we can share observations with parents regularly as they happen, parents can use the app to share information with us. As well as this we send home half termly and termly reports, have parents meetings, send home weekly plans of what happening in the classroom, hold key events to share information with parents, and have an open door policy where parents can ask at any time to have a chat about their child/children.
- Our complaints policy
We take all complaints seriously and act on each one to resolve any problems and work together to find solutions. We may also report complaints to OFSTED if we feel they are reportable under the EYFS. All parents are notified of the outcome of their complaint.
- Alterations we have made to make our building accessible
We have a ramp leading to our building which makes us wheelchair friendly and we have recently widened one of our toilet door ways to make it more accessible. We plan to add an intercom button to our front gate to make it accessible to wheelchair users.
- Facilities we have for personal care
We have toilet facilities for the children with nappy changing and we also have a separate toilet for visitors to the setting with nappy changing areas.
- Specialist resources we have
We have a new Interactive Smart Board for the older children to access on a regular basis, we have a wide variety of sensory equipment for the children to access. We have a variety of resources to support children who have English as An additional Language.
- How we include all children in activities, such as trips
We are an inclusive setting so all our activities tailored for children's individual needs. We take the older children from 3 and over on trips regularly and we change the dates of these to ensure all children get an opportunity
