In my setting, I believe that each child has individual needs. Childcare for children with SEND is crucial to all families who need it. It gives children a chance to play with other children and adults and to explore the world around them. Children with SEND are treated equally and given a fair opportunity to achieve their full potential. They are included in all activities alongside their peers. I understand the importance of complying with the requirements set out in the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND Code of Practice 2014.
My setting is located on the ground floor at my home. I have a large play area indoors and a good size garden. I can accommodate up to 10 children. I welcome children from all different back grounds.
- Identifying children's needs
My daily observations with the children in my care and the support which I offer to the child’s family enables me to spot early signs of additional needs. This is then discussed with the parents/carer. I also understand that it may be necessary in the case of a child who is not progressing to involve outside agencies for extra support, providing consent is obtained from the parents/carer.
- Dedicated contacts
I will be the first point of contact for parents/carer in the event that they have concerns about their child’s development. The SEND co-ordinator should also be contacted as this would enable them to work with the parent/carer and agree an action plan on the next steps for the child’s development.

- Measuring children's progress
It is crucial to have an individual outcomes plan for children with SEND as this would enable me and the parent/carer to monitor the progress of the child. A progress report should also be given to the parent/carer at the end of each term to identity the progress of the child and next steps to take. When the child is 2 years old, a 2 year progress check should also be complied with in the main areas of EYFS.
- Accessibility of the school
The setting is fully accessible and based on the ground floor. There is a toilet designed for children and easy to reach. All resources are located at children’s level and the garden is accessible from the kitchen door and kitchen patio.
A risk assessment is completed daily to ensure that all children, including children with SEND are in a safe environment and to ensure that I comply with health and safety regulations. There is also a great selection of toys to support all children’s learning and development including sensory toys.
- Transition arrangements
All relevant paperwork is passed onto the next setting providing I have the parent’s/carer’s consent.
