Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

We gather information about each child before they attend the setting and complete a baseline assessment of their learning and development shortly after they have joined us.This helps staff to work with the child on an individual basis knowing what next steps to put in place to support the child in further development. All children have a summative assessment written at the end of each term regarding their learning and development. This is shared with parents. We complete ongoing observations on children's learning and development linked to the EYFS unique child and age phases. Termly summative assessments for learning and development. If we have concerns about a child's development we put strategies into place which follow the 'assess, plan, do, review' cycle for early support. More information is available in our policy folder which is available for parents to read. The nursery SENCO works with all children on a daily basis. We use ECAT and Leuven Scale monitoring tools. We complete 'two year old'checks as a child approaches their second birthday.These are shared with parents and parents are invited to take a copy your their health visitor review.

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

Reviewing observations and assessments regularly. Linking them to the EYFS for expected age phases of development. Key worker discussions with Manager/SENCO each month. Following 'Assess,plan,do,review' cycles. IEP/PEP when required. SEN policy reviewed regularly.

Links we have to other agencies

We work with the area SENCO and Inclusion team.

How we support children transferring to school

Transition Meetings with parents. Talking to the children through circle times. Inviting the teachers to come to our setting and meet the children, share learning journeys etc.


Specialist skills or training our staff have

We have a Qualified teacher and Early Years Professional working at our nursery. We also ensure Safeguarding training for all staff. All staff are Paediatric First Aid trained. SENCO training is attended regularly and staff have attended training in visual support, makaton, behaviour management, speech and language programs.

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

Each room and outside space has ongoing risk assessments carried out to ensure we offer a safe environment. We complete Leuven Scale checks on a termly basis for well being and Involvement. Complete two year checks for parents to share with their Health Visitors. Invite dentists, nurses to come and talk to children. Promote healthy lifestyles through circle times, discussions, activities and positive adult role models. Health and safety policy for parent's to read. We have the key person system in place and our SENCO works full time in the nursery. We offer parents an 'open door' approach and all staff make children and parents feel welcomed and make themselves approachable. Our SENCO has experience of the early support process and has previously attended TAC meetings.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Parents/carers are invited to a meeting with their child's key worker once a term or more regularly if required. Parent/carer will be informed if we have a concern about their child's learning and development at the time. We ask parents to complete annual questionnaires as feedback is valued and helps us as a setting to continuously improve our practice resulting in better outcomes for the children who attend. Policies are reviewed annually with a 'Policy of the month' which is shared with parents. Parental contributions are welcomed. Parents receive a newsletter once a term to keep them informed and we speak to parents/ carers on a daily basis and complete daily diaries about each child's day which goes home on a daily basis. Our 'Wow' board and 'Learning Stories' enable parents to share their child's learning and achievements from outside the setting with everyone at nursery.
