Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings

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

All children are encouraged and supported to reach their individual potential.

Observations and assessments are carried out regularly to monitor each child’s development and progress. These are shared with parents on a regular basis and input from parents is encouraged to ensure age and stage appropriate activities/experiences are planned to promote/identify areas of development and learning.

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

Communication between myself and parents/carers is actively encouraged. Whenever possible, I ensure time for verbal communication is made at the beginning and end of each session (for more indepth discussions, a mutally acceptable time can be arranged). I also welcome discussion/sharing of information via email, text and through the use of daily diaries. Individual observation, assessment and planning records are completed termly and shared with parents, as is each child’s learning journey records.

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

All activities/experiences are identified through the observation, assessment and planning cycle and through regular discussion with parents and their children to identify individual interests.

Activities are adapted accordingly to encourage all the children to participate when possible, irrelevant of their age and stage of development.

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

Activities are adapted accordingly to encourage all the children to participate when possible, irrelevant of their age and stage of development.

I work closely alongside parents, other professional and relevant agencies to ensure that each child’s individual needs are supported.

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

Daily diaries and learning journeys are used to record children’s development and participation in activities and experiences. A starting points record is completed shortly after each child starts and further observations and assessments are carried out on a regular basis to determine developmental progress and individual next steps. These are shared with parents, input and comments are encouraged, on a termly basis. These observations and assessments help to support the planning process, ensuring each child’s individual needs and interests are catered for.

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

All activities and experiences are adapted, where possible, to ensure that each individual child’s needs are taken into consideration. Parents and other relevant professionals are consulted during the planning process when necessary.

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

There are stairs at the entrance to the property, as we live in a 2 bed maisonette. Currently no access for children with severe mobility difficulties/ wheelchair users.

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

I work closely alongside parents, other professional and relevant agencies and ensure good communication and information sharing so that each child’s individual needs are supported during times of transition.

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

Self-evaluation is used regularly to assess the effectiveness of the setting, service and activities/experiences on offer. Parents and children are actively encouraged to feedback and comment, through the use of daily diaries, learning journeys, development records, learning stories, emails, texts and questionnaires relating to the quality of the provision.
