Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

We seek information from parents and also work with the early years inclusion officer. We observe children and plan for their individual needs and track their progress, identifying any areas they may need additional support. We also invite parents in for the child's 2 year old checks, and we have summative assessment's, we ask parents/carers to sign or comment at each meeting.

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

We assess children's individual needs, identify their starting points and their next steps. We use children's interests to extend their learning.

Links we have to other agencies

We work with the early years inclusion officer, health visitors and children's centres. We also currently have a child under speech and language who we are working alongside to support progress and development.

How we support children transferring to school

We work with the schools, invite teachers in and provide reports. We also work with the children to ensure they are school ready. We are also using books with pictures of the schools the children are going to be attending, this will support any child who may feel anxious.


Specialist skills or training our staff have

We have qualified SENCo's and all staff are trained in child protection.

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

We support children to understand about being healthy.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We work closely with parents and seek their ideas. We provide regular feedback. We have summative assessment's where the parents/carers are encouraged to write how they feel their child's development and needs are being met.

Our complaints policy

We take all complaints seriously and try to resolve them with positive outcomes.


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

We have a new building it is accessible.

Facilities we have for personal care

We have nappy changing facilities and child size toilets and sinks. We also have a disabled toilet.

Specialist resources we have

We have staff trained in makaton, and a selection of sensory toys. We are also lucky enough to be able to access the amazing university grounds for little trips out to explore our surroundings.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We use the university grounds as there is lots to explore, we recently went on a trip to the local beach the children travelled there by bus.
