Local Offer

Special Needs Support

Children are enabled to have a settling in period in which they are monitored to assess whether they may need extra help if this is the case then the parent will be invited to come into the setting and discuss with the key person any areas that need extra support.  This will be discussed by using a targeted plan for the child in which all parties have to be in agreement to help the child meet their developmental levels.  

If as a parent you have concerns please inform the setting through the paperwork in the prospectus so extra monitoring can take place, phone or face to face meeting.  As a parent you must make the decision that the setting is the correct one for your child to meet your child's needs.

The SENCO of the setting will oversee the plan that is put in place for your child in which the key person will be implementing by working closely with your child on a weekly basis.  The SENCO will discuss every step with you and gain permissions to implement all plans.  We ai to provide the best we can for the children in our care and will gain extra help from specialist services if required.

Every child is an individual and should be treated as so that is why we plan individually.  Not all children learn at the same rate so activities have to be both achievable and flexible to meet all needs.  Thus helping your child to achieve in a positive environment.

Staff can be made available on request or if it is a more in-depth conversation required than agreed time can be arranged for all parties to meet in the office.  To monitor how well your child is doing we used two systems on is called Tapestry (online journal) in which the parent has access to and the setting also uses kent progress tracker that enables the setting to monitor all areas of learning.  The progress tracker uses colour so at an easy glance the user can see if the child is where they should be and if not discuss with keyperson ideas to better meet the childs needs.  

If you child has additional needs or learning difficulties you should have regular meetings with the SENCO or keyperson.  In these meetings disvcussion will take place on your childs level of attainment go through any personalised plans and agree on a way forward for home and nursery setting.

Within the setting if you child needs specialist support in administering medication and the setting is suitable for your child staff will be trained in and seek advice on how to administer the medication correctly. A medication form will have to be filled in by the parent/carer and after the medicine has been administered staff sign to say that the medication has been checked and given correctly.

The nursery will always offer support for a child's behaviour and support the parent as well, this can be very upsetting for the parent.  We try to encourage and reinforce the importance of attending nursery for the childs developmental needs.  All children's views will be valued and listen to in a professional manor, the children also take part in questionnaires in which involve smiley or sad faces.

The setting has an early years professional that works in the setting and is also has a B/A Hons in early years along with many years in the child care industry.  The setting uses other professionals such as Specialist teacher service, early help, social services, occupational therapy, paediatricians and the use of the companies social workers that are at head office.

 

Your childs progress will be monitored termly and as your child will have a personalised plan this will also be discussed with you and updated termly.

At our setting activities can be adjusted to meet all children's needs so as not to single out any children and to be inclusive of all what we do.  The setting does not go on outings that are far away they will only go to services that are in walking distance.

the setting has wooden ramps for access to the setting and tables can be moved to make more space to take into account children with mobility issues.

When children transition to a new setting or school we invited the school/setting to come and meet the child when they are still with us and fill in and pass on any relevant paperwork.  If the child/families first language is not English we do ask for the parents to translate certain words from English to their own language and use Google translator.  It has been known for parents with no English to have translators on their own phone and use this as long as children are not in the vicinity to protect the children.

When every child leaves to attend a new setting or school a transition document is completed by the setting with parental permission to share it with the new setting.  The setting will ask the new teachers/practitioners to meet the child in the setting and the key person to help prepare the child for this move.  The setting asks schools to take photos or the new school/nursery so that the child knows what to expect.

 

The nursery is assessed on effectiveness by using Kent progress tracker.

If you wish to contact the setting give Ester Rowe a call (manager of the setting)

The setting hand out an annual questionnaire for all children's parents/carers.
