Sally Claire Stewart


I am a fully Qualified, Experienced and Outstanding rated Ofsted childminder. I have been registered with Ofsted since August 2007.

I work from home which enables me to offer extended hours including early morning and after school provision. My own family are of 6th Form and University age and I always aim to offer a warm and inviting family setting.

I aim to offer a broad approach to childminding which includes attending social activities together with an emphasis on educational and play activities. We are often outside and visit local attractions, parks and woods with walks. I am also keen for children to create and design, so we often do arts and crafts.

I support parents throughout the process of childminding provision and my focus is always the child's wellbeing and development.

I also set aside to improve and develop my own knowledge base and often complete courses and seminars which insure I am always aware of the latest changes and best practices for my children.

Description

It is always my aim, to provide a setting that is fully inclusive for both children and parents alike.

With regards to SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability), I conduct my setting taking into account the guidance provided in the "EYFS 2021 Statutory Framework Document". I also include and comply with the "Equality Act 2010" and "SEND Code of Practice 2014".

 

 

Special Needs Support

In order to identify any child within the setting with additional needs or SEND, I regularly observe and assess all children including their 2-year progress check. I also work in partnership with parents/carers to identify children's needs and any additional support they may require. This is a continuous process and enables me to make reasonable adjustments to my practices when required.

 

Should a child either be identified with SEND or arrives at the setting with SEND I will regularly work in conjunction with any other professionals necessary to facilitate and meet that child's needs.

As a parent/carer, I will always keep you informed of your child's progress and how they are being supported in the setting. This will often take place at "drop-off" and/or "pick-up" where I will update and discuss with you matters that you need to be aware of. I also offer parent's evenings which allow for more in-depth discussion and the opportunity to discuss any additional needs your child may require. It is essential that when considering SEND for any child there is a strong partnership between myself and parents/carers.

When following the EYFS Curriculum I will make reasonable adjustments for all children including those with SEND. The main principle for these adjustments is that ALL children are unique and therefore the curriculum is followed whilst assessing individual needs and interests.

All teaching within the setting is regularly adapted and changed to make reasonable adjustments for all children, including those with additional needs and/or learning difficulties. Adjustments required to teaching practices will also be discussed with parents/carers.

Additional support required for children with additional needs or SEND will always be discussed with parents/carers.

In order to keep parents/carers informed of a child's progress, I will regularly discuss my observations with you. I will also use and refer to the non-statutory curriculum guidance, "Development Matters". For further additional monitoring of your child's progress, I will use the "2-yr Progress Check". All monitoring of the child's progress will be discussed with you.

All activities, including trips, where reasonably possible, will be adapted to include all children within the setting. This may where necessary, include a requirement for revised risk assessments. All activities within the setting are aimed to be inclusive for all children, including those with additional needs or SEND.

Not all areas of the property (upstairs bathroom) are easily accessible for wheelchair users, as the setting is in a residential property. However, the use of portable ramps etc. could be used to access the front door and back garden but these would need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. 

To support a child's transition to a new setting or school I can provide the parents/carers and/or new setting/new school with a transition form. I am also available to meet and/or communicate with the new setting to support the child's transition.

In order to regularly assess the overall effectiveness of my SEN provision whilst including parents'/carers' input, I facilitate opportunities for the setting to be viewed by parents/carers together with my own evaluation of the provision.

Sally Stewart

In order for parents/carers to give feedback, compliments and complaints to the setting, there are several options. These include daily handover discussions, phone calls, email, WhatsApp, parent questionnaires, and parents' evenings. For formal complaints, parents/carers are provided with a complaints policy together with a complaints form.
