Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

When a child starts, they will be allocated a Key Person who with the other staff will observe and assess your child while they play and make observations about their development, speech and interactions with the other children and staff. From these observations we monitor, review and talk to the parents about the best possible outcomes and decide together on what we can do. There are many different ways we can support your child depending on their needs. It may be one to one support, support from other agencies such as your Health Visitor, Portage or Speech and Language. Whatever we do it will be with the full support and involvement of the parents. The curriculum will be planned by the key Person and SENCo to the needs of your child taking into account their developmental stage, physical development and communication. We also include any interests your child has at home. We all work together on a Support Plan, assessing and reviewing the plan regularly. Our SENCo works closely with her Deputy SENCo, Manager and key persons. She has experience with completing Individual Support Plans and completing E.H.C.P. We have regular Narrative Play Sessions working with small groups. We have just started to work with the WellComm Tool Kit, this helps us to identify children who may need support with speech and language.
