How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

How does the early year's provision identify and assess children with special educational needs and disabilities?

The identification of SEND is built into our overall approach to monitoring the progress and development of all children, through continually assessing, planning, implementing and reviewing, as described in the SEND Code of Practice.

Ongoing observational assessments are made of all children and linked to the Early Years Outcomes and Development Matters ages and stages of development.

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

How will the curriculum be matched to meet children's developmental needs?

We assess all children when they join us so that we can build upon their prior learning. We use this information to provide starting points for the development of an appropriate curriculum for each individual child.

If our assessments show that a child may have a special educational need we will use a range of strategies making full use of all available resources.

In liaison with the SENCO, the child’s key person will offer interventions that are ‘different from’ or ‘additional to’ those provided as part of our usual working practices, taking into account the child's interests.

We use the 'graduated approach system' for identifying, assessing and responding to children with special educational needs. The process for doing this is to Assess, Plan, Do and Review.

How accessible is the early years setting environment? (indoors/outdoors)

How accessible is the early years setting environment? (indoors/outdoors)

Our Nursery room and outdoor area is within a local community centre and accessible all on one level. Should there be any limitations of the building affecting a child then we will attempt to make all reasonable changes and adjustments. Our resources are all accessible by the children who have free choice.

 

 

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

How will the early years provision prepare and support my child(ren's) transition to their next educational establishment?

We have a Transition Policy in place and hold review meetings to plan transition for a child into nursery/school. As well as parents and Nursery staff, these meetings could include foundation stage school teachers, school SENCO, staff from the receiving setting and relevant professionals. We share all documentation such as support plans, Early Years assessments and observations.

We invite receiving nursery/schools to visit us to familiarise themselves with, and observe the child and to share information in partnership with parents.

We have booklets containing pictures and information of the receiving nursery/school, which we share with the children and families. We operate an open door policy and our staff welcomes families to visit our Nursery. We will aim to work together to include any child with special educational needs and disabilities.
