The Children's and Families Act (2014) outlines the governments plans to require local authorities to publish information on services and provision across education, health and social care for children and young people aged 0 to 25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The purpose of a local offer is to enable parents and carers to see more clearly what services are available for children with SEND in their area and how to access them. The process extends to early years settings and all the information below forms our local offer and shows how Newton Longville Pre-School provides for children with special educational needs and disabilities.

- 2. How are parents involved at the setting and how can I be involved?
We operate an open door policy, meaning that parents/carers are welcome to speak to us at any time to discuss their child’s development and needs in an informal manner. We also use email and communication books for those who are not able to visit the setting regularly and offer stay and play sessions so parents/carers can see their child in action. We complete 2 years checks and settling in reviews with parents/carers when their child starts with us and our online learning journal (Tapestry) is up-dated regularly to show their progress in setting. We also encourage parents to use Tapestry to record and share their child’s learning moments at home, as this provides additional information about their preferences, allowing us to work together to set next steps and plan effective learning experiences.
We are also a committee run setting and we encourage all parents/carers to join our management committee to give them a direct say in how we operate.
- 3. How will practitioners work with me to share information about my child's progress? What is additional for children with SEND?
All children have a key person who will work with them and their families, sharing information as noted in 2 above. In addition, for children with SEND, their key worker and our SENCO will meet more regularly with parents/carers to discuss progress and co-produce documents such as Assess, Plan, Do, Review (APDR), SEN Support Plans, referral requests and requests for additional funding if appropriate.
- 4. What specialist services and expertise are available at, or accessed by the setting?
Our SENCO has 9 plus years' experience in early years environments and has completed a variety of training to meet the needs of all children. She is supported by colleagues who have recently undergone training in areas such as behaviour and communication.
She has also liaised with a range of professionals including those from the Early Years Team (SEND), Speech and Language Therapists and Educational Psychologists. She regularly attends the Early Years SENCO Liaison groups to keep up-to-date with developments in SEND practice.
- 5. How accessible is the setting's environment (indoors and outdoors)?
We work closely with all families to ensure our setting is as inclusive possible and will make adaptions where reasonable and practical. We have a ramp at the front entrance and a disabled toilet in our reception area. Child sized toilets and sinks are inside the main building. There are two steps to the outside area, but once outside the playground is flat with a grassed section. We also create areas for focused learning (both indoors and outdoors) where distractions are minimised.
- 6. What are the transition arrangements for supporting children and families?
We have a flexible approach to transitions and encourage all families to visit regularly before they join us. We also have weekend open days and offer home visits if required. We work closely with families, using comfort cards and visual timetables, to develop settling in routines specific to each child, recognising that they are all individuals who will settle at their own pace. If a child attends another setting or is moving on to a new one, we will (with parental consent) share all relevant information using our transition report. We also liaise with all local primary schools to ensure smooth transitions when it is time to leave us, organising additional visits as and when necessary.
- 7. What future plans does your setting have for developing its SEND?
We are reviewing our sensory environment and are planning dedicated spaces both indoors and outdoors to create more stimulating experiences.
