Additional Information

We have an embedded system to ensure that a key person is allocated to every child. This key person completes regularly observations that are then used to inform the child’s planning around their individual needs and interests. These include interests from home and interests at nursery. The key person completes assessments on every child to identify any support that may be required. These assessments are shared with the parents who are encouraged to add their comments. We then implement a joint approach. Provision has an inclusion / equal opportunities policy. Parents can use their Early Education entitlement at any time during opening hours.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

When a child initially starts with us we provide settling in sessions where the key person familiarises themselves with the child’s individual needs, interests and abilities. This is the initial opportunity for the parents to identify any needs with the key person so that these can be catered for. The parents and the key person complete an initial starting point of development form on this settling in session to identify any concerns. We have a nursery SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator) that has been trained through the local authority to support the key person, child and families to ensure that the child’s individual needs are met. We have robust policies and procedures in place which are reviewed regularly ensuring that our resources and environments are suitable and accessible for all. The SENCO will work closely with the key person to differentiate resources, experiences and activities to support the child. The nursery SENCO will work with the key person to provide personal plans for each individual child based around their abilities and interests. The SENCO will liaise with other professionals (with the parents’ consent) such as Early Years Inclusion Officers, Speech and Language Therapists and Health Visitors to gain further advise in supporting each individual child. The SENCO and the key person will work collaboratively to ensure that these targets and strategies are implemented. The plans and activities will be reviewed by the key person, SENCO and the parents regularly to update plans and provide support for all children.
