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?
Every child’s learning is planned for, observed assessed and monitored. If staff members have concerns about your child’s learning and development they will discuss them with you and together you will plan next steps. The first step is usually the implementation of an individual education plan (Play Plan) this is drawn up by the child’s key person and parents. Play Plans are reviewed every six weeks. If play plans have not been successful with your permission, we would seek advice from consortia (a board for children with additional needs). It may be necessary with your consent to involved specialist services for example Educational Phycologist or Speech and Language Therapist. If your child is new to our setting then progress will be discussed with you regularly and we are happy to liaise with any previous setting or professionals involved.
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 Journals, Observations, sensory play, visuals/symbols, small group work, large group work, focused activities, one to one time with your child’s key person, child initiated play, adult initiated play and free play within areas of provision.
- Targeted learning through mini topics that are linked to the EYFS outcomes.
- Referral to specialist services for example, speech and Language Therapy, SENISS and Educational Phycologist.
- Opening an EHAT (Early Help Assessment Tool) to support your child and family.
