Early Years Local Offer response
- Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support
All children are allocated a key person during their settling sessions, and will then be assessed within all areas of learning within the first 6 weeks of starting with us, this is achieved by the key person completing a baseline assessment. The key worker will then carry out ongoing observations to oversee children's progress. . If the key person has any concerns about a child, they will share these with the parents and the Nursery SENCO. If, after these discussions we feel that specialist support is needed, the SENCO will refer to the appropriate outside agency informing the parent/carers at each step in the process.
- How we identify and support children's learning and development needs
The child's key person is responsible for taking observations which could be of adult led or child led activities, all observations are linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage. If children are not meeting their expectations we would put our strategies in place - More focused observations would be made to help make our decision on our next step, This could be with the parents permission a referral or us as a setting using our skills to support the child and family
- Links we have to other agencies
We have links to the Early Years Inclusion Service, Speech and Language Therapists, Paediatricians, Health Visitors. Social services, Portage workers. We also have links with services who can help us to support children and families with English as an additional language.
- How we support children transferring to school
We have good links with our local school, where we invite their teacher to come in and meet the children and their key person, we are then able to share information about each child's learning and development. We also meet the children at the school on their first school visit. Once back at nursery we share pictures with the children at Nursery of their new school to help familiarise the children

MAKING A COMPLAINT
1 – Any parent that has a concern about the setting talks first of all to the management. Most complaints should be resolved at this stage as an informal complaint.
2 – If this does not resolve the issue, a parent should put in writing to the Owner their concerns. This will be stored in their child’s personal file and Carbis Bay Nursery complaint files. When the owner has investigated the complaint, a meeting will be held with the parent and a written response given. All written complaints will be responded to within 28 days.
3 – If the parent is not satisfied with the outcome, they should request a meeting with the Manager and Owner. The parent should have someone to accompany them and minutes of the meeting will be taken as well as any decision or outcome recorded. If this is signed by both parent and Manager it signifies that the procedure has been completed
