How does the setting know if a child will need extra help and what should families do if they think their child may have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND)?

Every child in our setting is treated as an individual with individual needs. Each child has a key person who works closely with your child and family. The key person will be responsible for your child's development. Through observation and planning for your child's next steps we are able to identify any concerns about your child's development which we will share with you. Your consent will be obtained before we contact the relevant professional for advice. If you have any concerns regarding your child's development you should speak to your child's key person for advice.

How will staff in the setting support a child with SEND?

Your child's key person will work closely with your child. The relationship that the key person has with your child will ensure that your child's developmental needs are met. We hold regular meetings to discuss your child's needs and offer additional support from other professionals as appropriate.

How will the curriculum for the setting be matched to a child with SEND's needs?

Every child has individual needs therefore we plan our environment to meet what each individual child needs. We will purchase any additional resources to support your child.

How will staff work with families about how a child with SEND is doing and how to support a child's learning?

It is important to all staff that they have good relationships with parents. We hold regular parent consultation meetings where you can look at your child's learning journey and discuss any concerns you have. You can also access your child's learning journey when ever you wish. Staff are always available to discuss any concerns you have regarding your child's developmental needs.

What support does the setting offer for a child with SEND's overall well-being?

Our setting offers you sessions where you can visit and settle your child into pre-school. Any issues can be discussed before your child starts pre-school. Promoting positive behaviour is important in our setting. We provide a caring environment where your child's safety is paramount. Parents are requested to sign their child in and out of the setting and no child is allowed to leave the setting with a person unknown to us.

What specialist services and expertise are available at, or accessed by, the setting?

We work with Buckinghamshire Learning Trust Early Years Service. We work with professionals as required for each child's individual needs. The professionals visit our setting to assess and observe your child. We will, of course, obtain your permission before we refer your child to a professional service. We work closely with professionals who provide us with reports and advice on how to support your child.

What training have the staff supporting children with SEND had or are having?

All staff receive the relevant training and refresh their training. All staff are qualified with the Early Years or are working towards their qualification. Staff attend SENCO training and SENCO liaison group meetings. All staff will undertake any training required to ensure your childs needs are met.

How will a child with SEND be included in activities outside the setting?

All children are included in our activities. We ensure that a child with SEND can take part in everything that we do. All children are invited on pre-school trips, parents are notified before a trip to identify any particular needs.

How accessible is the setting's environment (indoors and outdoors)

We have a wheelchair ramp to access outdoors, everywhere else in the setting is on one level.

How will the staff prepare and support a child with SEND to join the setting or transfer to a new setting/school?

Before your child starts pre-school you can visit as many times as you wish. This is to ensure that you and your child are comfortable with the environment. If your child attends another setting we will liaise with them to ensure their next steps are carried on. Our pre-school is within the school building and we have regular contact with the reception class to make the transition to 'big school' easier.

How are the setting's resources allocated and matched to a child's Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities?

As we are a registered charity we have limited funds, however, we can apply for grants and funding from Bucks local authority to ensure that your child's needs are met.

How is the decision made about what type and how much support a child with SEND will receive?

The setting manager and SENCO will work with you and any other professionals involved in your child's care to determine your child's needs. Your child's key person will also identify any additional needs.

How are parents involved at the setting?

As we are a committee run pre-school all parents are invited to be a committee member and attend meetings. We have a parent notice board which displays information for the parents. All parents are invited to help with fundraising. Parents can help during the session if they wish.

What future plans does your setting have for developing its SEND provision for example, training, facilities?

We work closely with the Early Years inclusion team who identify and advise us with any changes we need to make. SENCO training is refreshed frequently. All staff will undertake any training required to accommodate children with SEND.
