Our staff ensure that all children are cared for and included in all activities regardless of their abilities or disability.
We have access to the soft play room and the garden at the Children’s Centre. Passages are kept clear at all times for health and safety regulations and to facilitate children’s mobility. There are also carpeted areas that help to reduce noise levels.
- Identifying children's needs
Activities are play based and follow the EYFS curriculum. We are involved with outside agencies e.g. health visitors, EP and PT for some children and we also refer children to the SEND Panel to get more support for children so they can get, help with their development and for extra support. Some children may get Inclusion Funding which can be used for 1-1 support and any specialist resources required.

- Measuring children's progress
Regular observations of the children are made in reflection of the ability and interests, then next steps are made based on their areas of development that they need to progress in.
Once they have been set, we share these with the parent on our online journal which they have access to at all times. These next steps are then fed into our planning and then if not met repeated for the children to achieve it. We also have IOP’s for children who need to have extra support in various areas of learning. We set targets for their outcomes in their IOP and how we plan to meet them and when they are reviewed. All 2-year-old checks are carried out and shared with parents and kept on file.
- Support and training for school staff
Staff will be attending training in the new term to promote inclusive practice i.e. safeguarding, improving interactions with young children, SEN modular and forums, promoting play and interaction for children with SEND.
- Accessibility of the school
Resources are labelled at child level for easy access and reference, we are starting to introduce simple Makaton signing to encourage SAL development. We have access to the garden area to extend learning in the outdoor area and there is a slope for wheelchair access which enables all children to be able to learn and develop in and out side.
All activities are risk assessed and staff ensure that all children are included.
- Transition arrangements
For transitions we make contact with the feeder schools in the area that our children are going to. We ask to make a visit to the school to see the classroom and meet the teacher and possibly takes pictures to bring back to the setting for the children who will be moving on. We also produce developmental transition reports for the parents and schools and share those with both parties. We also have school uniform in the role play area for children to start trying it on to see what they will be wearing and what it will look like.
