Special Needs Support

Parents of all children that start at St.Martins Preschool are asked to complete an "all about me form" which allows the key person to find out about the childs level development, needs and interests to enable them to plan activities to continue your child development. The key person will meet with the parents /carers on a regular basis to discuss targeted areas of development.

Each child has a progress  check completed at 2 years old which is a satutory assessment. This may be the time where any delay in development can be discussed  and appropiated next steps planned.

Our SENCO and key person will ensure that our families have the best possible support to help with the yours child's development.

At St.Martins we feel the key person approach is paramount and is embebbed into our practice.

The key person will get to know you and your child from the very first visit and build up positive relationships with you and your child. There are many ways that you are involved in how your chil is being supported , these include ; 

  • Daily infomal chats
  • detailed learning journals with photos and observations
  • three times a year a formal invitation to discuss the learning journal with the key person
  • weekly dairy entries via SPARK our online system which helps us to record and evidence your child's development
  • meetings to discuss any targeted plans that we put in place to give your child extra support
