Education Offer

Overview

The Children and Families Act 2014 requires the Local Authority to have a single place of information, this is known as the 'Local Offer’ the purpose is to enable parents and carers see clearly what services are available for children with SEND in their area and how to access them. The following questions and answers from our local offer and show how we provide for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Parklanes Wykeham Childcare @ St Augustine’s has regard for the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice 2014

At Parklanes Wykeham Childcare @ St Augustine’s Breakfast and afterschool club we believe that all children must be given the opportunity to achieve and be included. All children access a full range of activities to develop and learn through play. Parklanes Wykeham acknowledges that some children with SEND may require extra support in order to access the activities provided. We are committed to work alongside parents and carers to share information useful to support their child’s development while at the club.

Parklanes Wykeham Childcare is located in the large infant hall of St Augustine’s Primary School offering a wide range of table top and floor activities for children of all ages with access to the outside area through the library or the side entrance which offers free-flow to the playground area for a range of fine and gross motor skills activities. Infant children are brought to the club by class teachers and two members of staff collect the children from the junior school.

Dining tables with attached seats are arranged around the hall to accommodate children with mobility difficulties tables are of child height and each end will accommodate a wheel chair, separate chairs and carpet areas are also available.

We also provide a quiet area for children to relax.

All passageways are kept clear at all times to follow health and safety regulations and facilitate children’s mobility. Ramps and handrails are provided for access to the outside area.

An easy accessible toilet is provided for toilet and hand washing facilities within the reception area.

Identifying children's needs

Parklanes Wykeham Childcare believes that each child is unique and has individual needs and that some children require more support than others. Early identification of difficulties is important and we consult with parents and carers to support those children who are experiencing difficulty with their development. We work closely with the Local Authority Early Years and Childcare Improvement

Team (EYCIT) who may be involved to give suitable strategies to accommodate children’s needs within our club. This is done with the written consent from parents and carers. We also liaise with St Augustine's Inclusion Manager who may suggest other strategies to use.

Parklanes Wykeham Childcare has a statutory responsibility to safeguard children and we may work with agencies when required.

When a child has been identified with a recognised condition or ongoing medical needs, relevant information is sought from parents and carers on admission, these are kept in the child’s confidential folder, and Parklanes Wykeham Childcare follows the relevant guidelines for data protection and confidentiality.

All records are passed on to another setting/school with parents and carers’ permission.
