Special Needs Support

Through play and observation. Staff are trained in child development and keep a learning journey on all children, giving parents a termly update of their child’s progress. staff attend training courses to help them understand and identify childrens needs. we also have contact with the specialist teaching service, if we feel a child is going to need some extra support.

Should your child be identified as needing extra support, we will discuss this with you and together we will make a plan to support the child. we will work with the specialist teaching service who will advice us the best way to support the child, this will all be done with the parents consent and they will be involved with any support plan that needs to be put in place.

Your child’s keyworker will work with your child and the support of the setting’s Senco. The materials, equipment or training that is needed will be purchased by the setting. All activities are always differentiated for children's ages and stages of development.

Depending on the needs of the child, the preschool will access help and support from the early years team, to be able to support the child’s needs staff are trained in Makaton sign language and work with the speech and language department. The setting Senco is always available for support to both the child and the parents. children are sometimes put on a targeted plan or a personalised plan, these are always done with the parents and any learning happening in the setting will be encouraged to continue at home as well. at the end of every term ( about 6 weeks  ) the plans will  be reviewed with the parents.

No child would ever be excluded from the setting. We would always find a way to support the child and their family, with help from the specialist teaching team, we would always support the child to best of our ability

Every term we have a parents’ meeting where you can come a talk to your child’s keyworker and look through their learning journey. Your child’s keyworker is always available to talk to at every session. If we are working on an area with your child you will be encouraged to help with this at home. target plans and personalised plans are always made with the parents and reviewed every 6 weeks.

Children are always included in every activity. We differentiate our activities to meet the needs of all children, should the child need an adult to be involved with an activity then we would get extra staff in to support them.

We are fully accessible

All children when transitioning to a new school have the opportunity to visit the school, talk to teachers and Sencos  and some schools come into the preschool to visit the children before they start their new school. We also meet with the school to discuss the children and their progress. the school sometimes look at the children learning journey as well and a report is sent to the school before the child starts.

Children with a support package in place have regular meetings with the Senco and parents to discuss the best way forward for the child. This is reviewed every 6 weeks with the parents and Senco. sometimes the new school will come into the preschool to see the child and talk to staff and senco.

Please contact us by email or phone or come in and see us at anytime.

All parents can talk to staff members at any time. There is also a room available to talk in private. There’ s a suggestion box and a complaints procedure in place.
