We ensure ongoing dialogue with parents to improve our knowledge of the needs of their children and to support their families.
All the children’s development is monitored by key person who will be the first contact when the parents have any concerns about their child. We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to observe and assess the children. When we identify children’s EYFS outcome is significantly below expectation for their age in comparison with their peers, the child’s key person will discuss with the children’s parents first and if necessary the setting Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) to take further steps. The parents also will be asked if the child has attended Two year old development check appointment with your child’s health visitor for the information to be shared with us. If not we will advise to arrange this with your child’s health visitor.
All the parents receive verbal feedback of how their children have been on the day to day basis in the setting the end of every session by a practitioner. We aim to give detailed feedback so the parents can picture what their children’s experiences were in the setting on the day. We also have parents evening every six months so the parents are able to discuss their children’s development progress as well as any concerns they have on this occasion. However, we do have an open door policy and we are happy to meet with the parents to discuss anything particular concerns they may have. We prefer to arrange a suitable time to meet rather than when parents are collecting/dropping off their children so we can discuss in more detail. The settings SENCO, who is also the setting manager, is available the majority of time and works very closely with each key person. Therefore, when necessary SENCO is able to give advice to the practitioners especially writing up Individual Education Plans (IEP) targets which will help particular children to achieve the particular target in the set time frame. The IEP are reviewed on average six times a year and we always discuss the children’s parents to set targets and organise activities to support at home.
The setting SENCO has experiences with children with additional needs and work collaboratively with local authority or other professionals. The SENCO attends targeted training termly. Some of our setting practitioners also have some experiences with children with additional needs previously. However, to keep their knowledge update, the SENCO/manager runs regular internal training. In the training we discuss about key legislation, identifying and assessing children who need extra support, working with parents, Individual Education Plan as well as training for specific medication such as EpiPen with the children’s parents or external trainer.
The parents’ noticeboard in the reception offer a variety of information such as different classes in the local children’s centre or private classes. We also have sport’s lesson every Tuesday for all the children to exercise their muscles with Sport coaches. We have and continue to try different extra-curricular activities such as music sessions, yoga and kids gymnastics. We continue to explore different options available to us.
