Measuring children's progress

The child’s key person will keep a detailed learning journey of the child’s day to day learning experiences. This will be shared with parents. From the detailed observations that the journey contains, the key person will plan learning experiences tailored to the child's individual needs. Staff will also work closely with any agencies involved in the care of the child. Each child will also have an IEP as well as a personalised care plan.

Support and training for school staff

Our SENCo supports all our staff. W also work closely with the area SENCo who visits regularly.

Accessibility of the school

Both our buildings are fully accessible up to the age of three. Woodbine Place has toilets in the 2-3 years old room that are accessible to a wheel chair user.


Our activities are planned around our children’s specific needs. Key persons will adapt, change activities and resources to support children’s care and learning needs. Where additional support is required we will work with parents and the local authority to find the best support.  

Transition arrangements

We have a highly effective transition policy where any changes are discussed with parents and when possible, the children. Staff in our preschool rooms build an effective working relationship with the schools our children go on to attend.
