Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

We aim to work in partnership with parents and value their detailed knowledge of their child and so we meet regularly with parents to ensure they are kept informed of their child’s progress.

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage and Early Language Monitoring Tool, as well as the Two Year old review to gather knowledge on each child’s development. We record observations of each child’s achievements and interests, on a computerized system, relating them to the 7 areas of learning of the Early years Foundation Stage and the Characteristics of Early learning. We use this information, together with the parent’s views and any specialist assessments, to identify any children who are not reaching age related expectations.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

When a child is identified as needing extra support, we discuss this with the parent / carer. Any actions are agreed jointly and vary according to the child’s needs. It may include providing extra support within the setting, or making a referral to an external agency and responding to their recommendations. We have frequently requested statutory assessments leading to a statement for a child, and have been part of a trial of the Education, Health and Care plans.
