Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

Each child is assigned a Key-Person on entry who observes and records the child's progress through regular monitoring and assessment in all areas of learning, which enables us to identify any area of concern or additional support required.

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

If additional support is required the child's key-person will work with the child's family and the settings SENCO to develop targets or any need to refer to other professionals

Links we have to other agencies

The settings three SENCO trained staff attend regular area Cluster meetings to keep them informed about latest requirements and developments. We also work closely with the Speech and Language Service, Portage,our area SENCO and the Inclusion Service

How we support children transferring to school

Our setting works closely with our local school and the Reception Teacher visits every week in the Summer Term. Staff also attend the Transition Learning Together Sessions with the school leavers at the school to support the starters. We share special times such as parties and trips with the reception class. In the summer term all the Reception teachers for the schools our children will be attending are contacted and invited to visit the child in the setting. Cohorts and Tracking Sheets are also shared with them at this time.


Specialist skills or training our staff have

All staff have at least a relevant level 3 qualification and years of experience. The manager holds a BA Hons in Early Years Education. All staff are Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, Health and Safety and Food Hygiene Trained and three members of staff have SENCO training.

We have MAKATON friendly status. All staff have received Makaton Training, which is used as routine.

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

Regular and consistent staff enable the children and families to develop secure relationships which in turn develops strong information sharing opportunities. The child's initial profile identifies any particular interests and regular observations develop their learning. The setting is part of the HEY and Nippers Nutrition Projects which helps develop a Healthy eating plan to share with the families. All staff have received Makaton Training which is used regularly as part of the daily routine.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

We have an Open Door Policy where parents/carers are welcome to share any concerns or developments at any time. We are contactable at all times during the day either by phone or email. We also hold Parent Meetings twice a year to discus the child's progress and development.

Our complaints policy

We believe that the child's and parents needs and wishes should be valued and listened to. We take complaints very seriously and will deal with them promptly in accordance with our Complaints Policy, which depending on the nature of the complaint may involve the Committee or OfSted


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

None, our Pre-School is fully accessible. There is plenty of parking with a wheelchair friendly path and Disabled access and toilet

Facilities we have for personal care

We have one staff/ disabled toilet and three low level children's toilets and sinks.

Specialist resources we have

We have access to a variety of resources, equipment and professional help. All are staff are Makaton trained and use it as part of our normal day. The setting has recently been awarded Makaton Friendly Status for the third year running. We are in the process of developing a new sensory area.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

Every child is an individual and their needs are always taken into account, assessed and adapted where possible so that all activities and trips are fully inclusive. This would include a risk assessment and high adult/child ratio.
