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

I provide the EYFS for  all children aged 0-5 years old.

I work with assistants and can change to lower ratios where needed. 

I like to take the children out as much as we can weather permitted:local park,farm,woodland,cinema,feeding the ducks.

I request feedback through questionnaires, I also ask for information/feedback through learning journeys and paperwork.  I speak to children, observe and implement interests in plan.

What specialist training, experience and expertise do we have relevant to children with special educational needs and disabilities?

 I would attend training or add resources to meet needs where appropriate and reasonably practicable.

I have supported families to access different agencies and supported families where I can.

How accessible is our setting?

Fully accessible.
Access to the building, downstairs WC, parking is on same level and a selection of sensory play items.
