Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
On initial entry we will have conversations with the parent/carer, about their child and a registration form is filled out. We also provide an Starting points booklet to be filled out with the parent to provide more detailed information about their child. We use EYFS tracking sheets for all children and through our observations we plan for the individual child. The ECAT monitoring tool is used to assess the children's language and communication. Within the first few weeks of attending pre school staff complete a 2 year check/ on entry assessment. The parent is then invited to come in and discuss their child's development with the key person. At the end of every term a summative assessment is carried out on all children, parents are then invited in for a consultation. We use cohort tacking to help us identify children's individual needs. Our staff attend regular training to enable them to have a strong knowledge of child development. We have accessed place plus funding in the past and if required would be able to access it again in the future.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
Staff have attend some Makaton training, sensory training, behaviour management, ELDP, visual training and supporting boys with communication. We work closely with outside professions such as, SLT and the SENCO team and follow agreed targets for children to achieve. All staff have attended on a two day course to enable us to use it as part of our general practice. After our visuals training we have implemented the use of spot timers and visual timetables for the whole group.
- Links we have to other agencies
We regularly work with speech and language, SENCO and health visitors. We have also worked with the portage team, family support, behaviour support team, A CDC teacher and an educational psychologist. It is also possible to access other agencies if needed. All outside agencies are welcomed into the setting at any time and we value their support.
- How we support children transferring to school
We have two local feeder schools who we welcome in to visit our setting this allows the children to meet them in a familiar environment. The class teacher is given the opportunity to read through the child;s learning journeys to give them a broader insight into the child and their development. The children are invited by the class teacher for a visit with their parent/carer. We talk to the children about their new schools, the name of their new teacher and who is in their class. All staff have attended transition training to make the process as smooth as possible for the whole family.
