Special Needs Support

Observations and use of the EYFS helps me to identify if a child has any additional needs. I also have good.communication with parents and other settings.

I update parents on a regular basis and complete observations with are sent to the parents.

Lots of resources to suit individual needs are provided and regular observations.

Lots of sensory activities to engage children with SEN or disabilities. I am also able to offer one to one time in a calming environment if and when required.

I have a good working partnership with other settings or agencies, such as Pre schools and speech therapists. I would also provide the child with a key worker to promote continued care and support.pare

Observations will be carried out and monitored and parents will be updated with these.

Trips will be assessed to ensure that they are accessible to all children. I will ensure that all activities are adapted to include all children, no.child will be excluded.

Easy access, no steps. Bathroom is also on ground floor.

Our local school usually arranges a visit to meet the child at the setting. 

Values the importance of working in partnership and the use of development trackers.

Main contact is Kerry Manning

I have a complaints form which is given to parents with their policies when they start.
