Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
All children have an entry baseline assessment with on going regular observations and assessments throughout their time with us. Two year olds will also have a separate assessment when they join us. These are linked to the EYFS development stages. Each child has a key worker allocated to them who will record the information in their learning journey book.
We have built good relationships with our parents/carers to ensure that communication and information sharing takes place.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
Through regular observations by the child's key worker they can identify if the child has any delay or difficulties in any of the seven developmental areas. The pre-school offers regular feedback to parents/carers on how their child is progressing and if they may need extra support in certain areas. We hold termly parents/carer meetings to discuss any concerns or issues with the child's keyworker. Our pre-school has an open door policy so that if any parents/carers need to speak to any member of staff we will ensure this happens immediately. Cohorts are done termly to identify if any specific groups of children need extra consideration.
Key workers work closely with the SENCO to put provision in place to help support the child and to ensure inclusive practice.
