SEND Local Offer SEND

How do you communicate with the parent/carer whose child has SEND? Prior to a pupil starting meet with parents to discuss specific needs. Meet each half term to review and set targets. Pupils who we identify as possibly having additional needs - we meet with parents to explore concerns that we have and to see if they have similar concerns. Initially monitor and then engage with other professionals - usually health, offer Early Help or direct to Children's centre.

How do you help children settle into your setting?

Staggered starts - adapt induction to needs of pupils, offer home visits, short visits to the setting etc… complete all about me so that we have an understanding of what is important to the child and family. Close communication with parents through phone calls, communication app etc Liaise with the pre-schools, child minders etc

What help and support does your setting offer to children with SEND as they move rooms or move on to school?Transition sessions - including social stories with photos etc, introduce the new staff to the pupil through shared story time, singing etc

How do you find out how each child likes to learn?

Through discussions with parents and any other preschool experience. Through home visits and observations of the child when visiting our setting.
