Local Offer

Special Needs Support

Completion of getting to know me forms with parents, regular reports also.

I complete regular progress reports and personal scrap books are filled with children’s achievements and/or activities. 

Daily diaries completed for those in Early Years age range. 

Each child’s educational planning is based on information gained on an initial visit and the parents completion of a ‘Getting to know me’ form. I’m happy to access any training that will further help children in my care and their achieving to their best abilities. 

I intend to provide an inclusive environment for all, I will happily access any relevant training that may ensure I achieve this.

The progress reports will highlight concerns and with parent partnership we can address any issues and provide support where needed together. 

My environment is spacious and I provide opportunity for floor and table play. 

My step at door could be issue but space once indoors isn’t issue. 

I insist on helping transition by being part of this process, the few weeks before school we work together on skills that will help once children are in school environment and both parents and school receive reports highlighting skills and/or areas requiring support. 

The parents are encouraged to look at the environment and assess suitability to their child’s needs. I have toilet facilities available and appropriate equipment for nappy changing.
