Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

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

As part of the setting's policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs to each individual child, we take account of any special needs a child may have. The setting works to the requirements of the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice (2014)

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

We use the 2 year progress check and regular observations to highlight if a child is falling behind in any of the prime areas of learning.

Links we have to other agencies

We are supported by the Early Years Inclusion and Improvement Team, Health Visitors and Speech and Language Therapists.

How we support children transferring to school

We have strong links with the local primary school. We invite local foundation level teachers to visit the Pre-School and the child's key person visits the school with the children. Weekly visits are arranged during the last half term of the the Summer Term to help with transitions.

Welfare

Specialist skills or training our staff have

Paediatric First Aid, Makaton training, Food Hygiene.

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

Promote healthy eating and lifestyle.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Offer regular parent meetings and learning journeys are always available to parents.

Our complaints policy

Speak with the setting leader. If not resolved put the complaint/concern in writing to the setting leader and the chair of the committee. If still not satisfied, request a meeting with the setting leader and chair of the committee. If an agreement is still not reached, an external mediator is invited to help resolve the issue. When the mediator has concluded investigations, a final meeting is held between the parent, the setting leader and the committee's chair person. Parents may approach Ofsted directly at any time during the complaints procedure.

Access

Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

We have a new build which on one level. and can be accessed by wheelchairs. There is a slope to enter and leave the building. This also leads to an outside area which has tarmac as well as a flat grassed area.

Facilities we have for personal care

We have a disabled access toilet.


Children's toilets are in a cloakroom to the side of the pre-school room. The toilets and sinks are the appropriate height to allow children to manage their own personal needs.

Specialist resources we have

n/a

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

Risk assessments are carried out, and we ensure that staffing levels are adequate, enlisting parent helpers where appropriate.
