Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

At Camborne Nursery School we use a range of strategies to identify and support all children. We believe parents are partners in the children's learning and development. We meet children at home before they start nursery to find out about their interests and needs. We assess children through play and use the Early Years Foundation Stage to monitor children's progress. We work closely with other professionals to support children in the Nursery. As a school we follow the SEN code of practice and monitor children with additional needs through the cycle of Plan/ Do /Review.

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

Children at Camborne Nursery are supported to achieve their full potential. All children have a keyworker who will observe, plan and carry out activities to extend children's learning through play. We work closely with parents (and other professionals) to help children achieve their full potential.
