Early Years Local Offer Response
- 1. What recent SEND specific training has been completed by practitioners in the setting?

Recent courses undertaken include:
- Regular SENCO meetings and training through Buckinghamshire Early Years

- 2. How are parents involved at the setting and how can I be involved?
At Jack and Jill Pre-School we have an open-door policy and you are welcome to speak to us at any time about your child's development. We have regular key worker meetings with parents to discuss children's progress and next steps. We encourage parents to upload any photos or activities and achievements done outside the setting to their child's online learning journal. We send out a weekly newsletter about the activities we have done that week and we also have a Facebook page. Parents are invited into the setting to share their interests, skills, occupations and family celebrations.
- 3. How will practitioners work with me to share information about my child's progress? What is additional for children with SEND?
We have an open-door policy where parents are welcome to speak to us at any time about their child's progress. Our Online Learning Journals provide us with a monitoring tool that can help us to identify any gaps in a child's development, their next steps and whether any additional support is required. Having high qualified members of staff means that we can identify and support any needs quickly. During keyworker/parent meetings a 'what to expect when?' guide will be given to parents and further information will be given if needed. We also offer a home communication book between the setting and families to enable support and sharing of information, if required. For children with SEND, we put in place an APDRs (Assess Plan Do Review plans) and if required, a Support Care Plan.
- 4. What specialist services and expertise are available at, or accessed by the setting?
Our Staff team is highly experienced and hold Level 3 qualifications. We have a low staff turn over and the majority of staff have been at the setting over 15 years. We have an Early Years professional who regularly attends training courses and relays information back to staff members.
We have formed close links with outside agencies, including the Early Years Service, Speech and Language Therapists, Education Psychologists, Occupational therapists and Local Schools.
- 5. How accessible is the setting's environment (indoors and outdoors)?
Our main setting is all one level and accessed by the main front door. Toilets are situated just off the main hallway.
The garden can be accessed by a small step from the back door or via a small step from the front door.
The garden as a grassed area and concrete area.
Ramps are available for the front door access if needed.
- 6. What are the transition arrangements for supporting children and families?
We offer a flexible 'settling in' policy. We invite the children to come in the term before they start to meet us and familiarise themselves with the setting. When a child starts with us we work closely with their parents to monitor their needs and how they are settling in, if a child is struggling we will discuss this with parents and work together to meet the child's needs.
We have close links with the local schools to ensure smooth transitions, this includes visits by the local teachers to our setting.
