Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings

1: How does the setting identify children with additional needs or SEND?

All children have a  learning journal this is available at all times for parents to look at..   I observe the children on a regular basic.

I would discuss any concerns with the parents i would also talk in confidence to a west Berkshire early years advisor .

2: How will I be informed / consulted about the ways in which my child is being supported?

I will work with the parents involve and discuss things with them .if there is any training /courses that would help i am happy to take part with these.

each child will be encouraged supported to achieve their goals at their own pace.

3: How will the setting adapt the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for my child's needs?

I use the eyfs framework as a guide I take into account the child's age abilities as all children are at different stages .                       

I plan accordingly and encourage all children to take part and be involved . I will ask parents what their child enjoys doing and follow this in my setting.

4: What teaching strategies does the setting use for children with additional needs or learning difficulties?

I would work with the parents, pre school, nursery, school and professionals and ask for advice ideas to help the child .if parents agree visit family home for ideas and feedback on things to support the child .use pictures, photos, posters, signs, visual timetable to help them communicate and understand what we do / routine.


5: What additional support does the setting provide for children with additional needs or SEND?

I would take into account the child's age, routine, likes, dislikes, any additional needs then work out a plan to support each child.

6: How will the setting monitor my child's progress and how will I be involved in this?

In confidence talk to others, look at what courses /support there is that may help me.  Each child has a learning journal which can be seen at anytime. I am happyto talk to parents anytime if they have concerns.


7: How do you ensure children with additional needs or SEND can be included in the same activities as other children, including trips?

All children are treated the same, they are all encouraged to join in and take part. If needed I will adapt activites to support their needs. I will get advice from parents when planning a day trip to keep their child safe, secure and happy.

8: How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?

My house is accessible but we dont have a downstairs toilet.

9: How will you support my child's transition to a new setting or school?

Transition to another setting can be worrying and upsetting for a child. I will work with the parents / new setting and talk to the child about whats going to happen. I am happy to go with the child to visit the new setting and show them the learning journal.

10: How does the setting assess the overall effectiveness of its SEN provision and how can parents / carers take part in this evaluation?

I carry out planning, observations, daily talks with parents, learning journals are sent home often for parents to look through and discuss any concerns with me.

Miss D Addison



12: What arrangements does the setting have for feedback from parents / carers, including compliments and complaints?

I am available anytime if parents need to discuss anything.

We have a chat when dropping off /collecting their child. Parents are aware of my complaints procedure and I would hope that they talk to me first so we can resolve things,
