Special Needs Support

We have a key person system embedded at Well Place where every child is allocated a member of staff this is to develop a close working relationship with the parents and child. On your child's first settling in visit you will meet your child's Keyperson they will ask you to fill out an 'All about me' form regarding your child this will give us important information which will ensure we can provide the best possible care for your child, this information will inform us if any other professionals are involved or any dietry or medical needs they may have.

During your child's time in the nursery their keyperson or Buddy Keyperson ( a buddy keyperson is another member of staff allocated to your child when their Keyperson is away from the setting) They will upload observations to Tapestry their online learning journal which as a parent you can access. This will work alongside the Early years outcomes as a guidance tool to asses your child's development; This may identify any additional educational/ care needs your child may require.

 

We place a great importance on working in Partnership with parents at Well Place. this postive working relationship is gained by the Keyperson system. which gives opportunities to discuss your child's learning and development face to face, email or by phone. to make sure all children's needs are being met we have a Special Education needs Co ordinator on site which will support the keyperson in providing the care your child needs by following the 'Graduated approach'. If further interventions are considered a formal meeting will be arranged by the SENCo with parents and their keyperson involved this will give an opportunity to discuss your child's needs together. Working in partenership we may put in some strategies to support your child linking to a Targeted Plan which will achieve an outcome and be reviewed termly.

At Well Place every child is treated as an individual, your child's keyperson will plan using EYFS Framework, we asses and plan using the 3 Prime and 4 Specific areas and adapt to a child's needs when needed.

If a child has additional needs we plan around their own interests, we use the Best Practice guidance documents and all staff are trained to ensure a child is achieving their own goals. which can be done within the setting or home environment, meetings can be arranged for parents to come into he office to speak to the keyperson, SENCo or manager to help and support the child in achieving possible targets set in their targeted plan, we may also ask for advice from outside agencies. we also offer parent training events through out the year.

We use the Graduated approach, all children a targeted level at a targeted level short time support or a personalised level regularly reviewed by parents, Keyperson and SENCo

Every child is an individual and unique so  care will be carefully tailored to their needs taking into account their daily routine at home and individual needs.
