Local Offer

Special Needs Support

Every child has a keyperson who will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, carrying out a starting point, weekly observations, termly Assessment, two and half year checks. Staff and families work together to gain all relevant information to identify any concerns. The setting has two Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator who will work with staff and other professionals to develop and further each child potential. Screening can be carried out for Speech and Language and referrals made. Also Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist can have a referral made to them.

Keyperson, Room Leader's and Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator all have a active involvement in how each child is supported. Parents and carers will be given the opportunity to meet with staff to update Personalised Plans, Targeted plans and too consult how other professionals can get involved and when involved, how each child will be supported. Working in Partnership with parents/carers will give each child the best opportunity to thrive whilst at Kiddie Kapers Nursery.

Through weekly observations, keyperson approach to every child we can identity each child's individual interest's:-

  • what works best for them, how they approach their learning
  • what they are happiest with, how they learn effectively.

Every child's keyperson will plan for each child,weekly and termly so that every areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage can be accessible adapting to included each child's development and and learning.

The setting uses Emporium Plus for additional resources, Early Years Pupil Premium for any children eligible, to meet their individual needs across the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Kiddie Kapers Nursery is based in the Willow Centre, and is a pursose built setting all on one level with easy access to a large outside area, with wide fitted doors for easy wheelchair access. No steps or ramps needed to access any areas of the setting.

Targeted Plans are written by Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator to support children at a targeted level, so targets can be in place for staff to support additional needs. When other professionals such as Speech Therapist or Specialist Teacher is involved then a child will have a Personalised plans written with learning outcomes for each child to work towards, these will be updated every two terms with achievable targets in place. 

By using child's interets in these targets we will have a greater success with these being fullfilled.

All staff work closely with outside agencies, such as Speech Therapist, Portage or Specialist Teachers. Specialist Teachers can be accessed through the Local Inclusion Forum Team (LIFT).   Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator's will gain consent forms from Parents/Carers to fill the relevant paperwork to gain Specialist Teacher support to gain strategies to further learning and development.

A number of agencies or additional support resouces can be access through the setting and staff work with parents/carers to find the best proffessional to support each individual needs.

Daily feedback is given by Keyperson or the Keyperson's Buddy so that parents/carers have a good understanding of each child's daily learning, including activities or Wow moments. Observations are carried out and uploaded to Tapestry, the online learning journal. We will have three parents evenings every year, for parents/carers to discuss and share.  Assessments are carried out by each child's keyperson three times a year and staff will analyse to plan for individual needs to improve outcomes and then share progress information with parents/carers.
