Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

Bradford Abbas Pre-School is an inclusive setting where we ensure all individual needs of children in our care are met. Each child is allocated a key-person whose role is to develop a nurturing, understanding relationship with both the child and their parents or carers. The key-person plans stimulating, engaging activities to allow children to move progressively through the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) where they make best-fit judgements about whether a child is showing typical development for their age, or may be at risk of some delay. Where a child appears to be behind expected levels or where a child’s progress gives some cause for concern, The Graduated Approach will be put in place which incorporates an ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’ process. We will work closely with the child’s parents or carers, the setting SENCo and specialised services to ensure the child is valued and supported. Reasonable adjustments to the day-to-day running of the setting would be made to make certain the individual child’s needs are being met to allow them to reach their full potential. The setting’s SENCo, the child, their parents/carers and the child’s key-person will work collaboratively to implement an Individual Plan (IP) with small, manageable targets to facilitate the child in advancing throughout the EYFS. On occasion further assessment and support is required. In this instance we would look to implement an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) which outlines the extra help that will be given to a child in order to support their learning and development whilst always putting the child at the centre of any plans that are made.
