Schools Extended Local Offer Response

How do we offer support to children or young people with a special educational need or disability?

Children's progress is monitored through the current EYFS, children who need additional support will be identified through observations and baseline assesments. Support will be offered to individual children working on interventions.

If any parents have any concerns about their child's development they are welcome to speak to their key person or the Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENco) who will be happy to offer any advise and support.

Transition to school or nursery is supported within setting, we liase with other settings if a child is moving onto school or nursery setting.

Meetings with parents are encouraged, it is important to us to have a close working relationship with families and disscuss children's individual needs.

Rising Stars SENco is Gemma, she has worked in childcare for twelve years and worked with a variety of special educational needs and disabilities.

The SENco has worked with a variety of professionals and carried out Early Help Assesments for families, we currently have children in the setting who access the Interim Inclusion Grant, which the SENco has successfully applied for, this enables children to access 1-1 support or enables the setting access to funding for specialist equipment.

All practitioners in Rising Stars have experience working with children with additional needs, they have experience in contributing to support plans and delivering 1-1 when needed and interventions for children needing additional support.

All staff are aware of the SEND code of practice and how it impacts our setting. Staff have under gone specific training such as MAKATON, PECS, WELLCOM and ELKLAN, all staff are willing to undertake any training they may need to support children in the setting.

stay and play sessions are offered for all children who access the setting, these are three individual hours which can be used at parents discression, some like to stay for the first session then leave their child for the remaining two to give them a chance to get to know staff and children in the setting.

All children's interests are accounted for within the setting, when we have children who have specific likes we like to encorparate that into our continuous provision and planning.

planning is carried out by all members of staff and all activities are differentiated to meet children's individual needs and ensure all children can access the activities.

We like to have a close working relationship with parents where we can find out all about what children love at home and discuss how we encorporate that into the setting, we have take home books where parents can write about activities they do at home and include pictures so that practitioners can use this to disscuss with children and build a strong relationship between home and setting.

we have a number of children who use the Early Years Developmental Journal, this breaks the EYFS down into more achieveable steps for children who have additional needs.

Children's progress is monitored closely by the key person, it is reviewed in progress meetings every six months, this is where progress and next steps will be idenified and monitored to ensure the support for individual children is working and having an impact on their learning and development.

Rising Stars hold parent events for parents to come into setting and particpate in activities with their children. We also have parents evenings where children's progress and development is disscussed.

Worsbrough Common Primary school who we are attached to offer various courses throughout the academic year for parents to access. 

Progress is monitored through moderation meeting within the EYFS team at Worsbrough Common Primary School, we have a very close relationship and are supported by the whole EYFs team.

Parents are updated after every session on how their child has been that day and what they have been doing during the session.

Rising Stars encourages transition meetings with the next provision should it be a school, or nursery.

We liase really well with other settings and agencies and like to promote multi-agency working.

Parents are given regular updates about their progress, we have an open door policy where parents are welcome to come and speak to their key person at any time.

We also have a blog where parents can see what kind of activities have been going on throughout the day, and are able to comment on the activities and pictures on the blog.

When creating support plans or individual planning parents are included in this process and all parents views are taken into consideration.

We have a parent suggestion wall where parents can put up their suggestions for future activities or how we can improve our service.
