I follow the guidance as laid out in the equalities act 2010 and provide a childcare service for all children aged 0 to 11years.

Once we have established the Childs needs I will then discuss with the parents any relevant training or resources I my need to access.
How do we identify the particular special educational needs of a child or young person?
I will follow the guidance set out in the SEND code of practice and I will discuss with the parents how I can best support their Childs special educational needs. If the child attends other setting or receives professional support from other agencies, I will ask the parents permission to contact all others and aim to work together in supporting their Childs special educational needs. The information that I gather from parents/ cares and other professionals before the child starts will enable me to offer the correct support the child needs and access any additional training or resources’.
How do we consult with parents and/or children and young people about their needs?
I welcome all families into my setting to meet and have a look around. I offer a settling in period where parents and child can visit a few times before they are due to start. This enables us all to become more familiar with each other and helps the transition process for the children. I will share information with the parents and encourage them to do also e.g. daily diary, verbal exchange, Learning diary, Learning and development book and termly reports and observations.
What is our approach to teaching children and young people with special educational needs?
I have an equal Opportunities/ inclusion policy and procedure for all parents to access. I ensure all children are treated equally.

I will discuss with parents and other agencies how we can best support the child. I implement and adapt the EYFS curriculum accordingly to the Childs individual needs.
