Overview

At Ilford Tots to Teens our staff believe in providing a range of experiences and different kinds of play, for an individuals approach to learning. Meeting the specific needs of an individual and enabling them to benefit from the opportunities provided.

We have two dedicated rooms which cater for children aged 0-5 years. Through these rooms we are able to run a day nursery and a pre-school offering the 15 hours a week free early education funding and the extended 30 hours free early education.

Our staff build strong and stable partnerships with parents during the settling in periods and parent inductions, taking the time to cater to the child’s needs. They encourage and support all the children in our care through learning and development experiences. Our setting is very diverse and supports all additional languages. Many of our staff also speak a variety of languages.

We believe in a free flow approach to learning allowing the children to have access indoors and outdoors continuing their play

Identifying children's needs

On a child’s first day during a settling in session the key person would introduce themselves and complete an individual needs form with the parents/carers.

The key person will use this information to complete a baseline assessment within one week of the child starting our setting, to be able to identify areas of next steps through observations.

We then monitor the children’s progress via our Babys Days tracking system every 6 weeks and complete two-year checks and all about me’s each term. Using these trackers can give us a guidance as to what areas the children need support in, if during this time a key person observes a child that requires extra support, a meeting will take place between the parent and key person to put a support plan in place. This plan is seen by the key persons and our SEND co-ordinators.

Dedicated contacts

In the first instance any parent/carer who has any concerns could speak directly with their child's key person or room senior. If after this the matter is still unresolved our SENCo or manager would be happy to help.

Involving children and their families

We hold parental workshops to support parents in different aspects of parenting, such as behaviour, potty training etc. We also hold various information on local children's centre sessions.

Measuring children's progress

Children are monitored daily through observations by their key person. A daily diary is completed for their parents/carers about their child's experience at nursery, which links to their next steps and progress.

Each term a child would have a completed "All about me", progress tracker, ECAT and a parental consultation would take place.

Support and training for school staff

Our SENCo is level 4 qualified and we also have a deputy SENCo in their absence.  The SENCo attends regular training and any forums related to SEND. During our staff meetings this information is then cascaded to all staff.

Accessibility of the school

The building is accessible for wheelchair users from the entrance in the garden. The nursery is ground level only with facilities accessible to all. Any additional requirements can be discussed with the parents at the settling in process.

Inclusion

Risk assessments will be carried our if required, once we are more aware of the child's individual needs. This would be in addition to our daily risk assessments. This would allow each child to access all of our amenities as our staff will differentiate our activities as necessary

Our children with additional needs would have their own Individual Outcomes Plan which will be shared with parents/carers. They will also have regular meetings to discuss their progress and needs.

Transition arrangements

 At our setting, when your child starts with us from 0 your child would be in Aspen room up until the age before their 3rd birthday, then they would transition in Sequioa via an internal transition. This is used to communicate between practitioners to gain an understanding about their new key child.
