How do you involve parents and how can I get involved?
We respect every Parent as their child's first and most enduring educator. We will work closely with you before your child joins us to understand their needs, likes, dislikes and the aspirations you have. With Covid restrictions currently in place Parents are not entering the Nursery unless essential. However, we listen and respond to all of our families’ unique needs and your child's settling in will be arranged through discussions focused on your child's needs.
How will you share information with me about my child’s progress? What is additional for children with SEND?
We will offer you either a written daily diary or verbal feedback at the end of every session. We have an online learning journey portal called EyLog. The team will send you photographs and video's to note wow moments and developmental progress. We offer written summative reports twice a year. All of our families use the EyLog app to send in updates on home learning and home experiences which contribute to their child's learning journey.
For our children with SEND we will liaise with the professionals supporting your child, and follow any programmes identified to support your child’s needs. We will complete cycles of ‘Asses, Plan, do and review’ which will potentially then be filtered in to a support plan for your child. Every child’s needs are unique to them. We will work closely with you to ensure that we understand the stage your child is at with SEND identification, and respond to your family’s needs accordingly.
