1. How does the setting know if children need extra help and what should I do if I think my child may have special educational needs?
Upon registering your child with our setting, we ask parents/carers to attend a 1:1 induction at nursery or we can arrange a home visit. This gives parents a chance to get to know their child’s key person and discuss the child’s development. This also gives the parents/carers a chance to ask questions and speak to the key person regarding any concerns they may have about their child’s needs.
We are also happy to liaise with previous settings or childminders regarding the child’s developments. Once the key person has settled the child into nursery, if they notice any concerns with the child’s development they will liaise with the settings Senco and this will then be discussed further with parents/carers.
2. How will the staff in the setting support my child?
The progress of all children is monitored and reviewed regularly and shared with parents. We measure progress using;
- EYFS, Learning Journeys, Observations, Leuven well-being and involvement scales, sensory play, visuals/symbols, small group work and key person time
- Referral to specialist services
- Play plans and care plans (If applicable)
3. How will the curriculum be matched to my child's needs?
The setting is organised by chronological age. We provide weekly room plans and also monthly individual plans based on the child’s individual interests. The curriculum is adapted to a child's individual needs.

6. How will the setting support my child in transferring to the next stage of education?

7. How are parents involved in the setting? How can I be involved?
We have an open door policy in our setting, so we allow the parents/carers to come in at any time and view their child’s work.
We provide reports for parents/carers on a 3 monthly basis, and invite parents in for parent’s/carers evenings.
