How will the curriculum be matched to my child’s needs?

We will get to know your child through ongoing observational assessments. These assessments will be linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage of development and will be set out in their learning journey. The key-person will also work with the Senco on your child’s ‘One Page Profile’ to support the learning and development of your child. This enables planning for your child’s individual needs and their learning goals.

Your child’s key person, Senco and Manager will work together to make sure that the environment, routines and activities support your child’s needs, they will communicate with the rest of the staff to provide consistency and understanding within the team.

We will ask for copies of assessments from other professionals before your child starts, and advice from ECC will be sought, if necessary with your prior permission.

Karen Montgomery will monitor and analyse progress of children within the setting to address any areas of weakness. This information will be used to focus on specific areas and adapt areas that are not meeting the children’s needs.

The children are involved in planning for their next steps and help to stick these into their learning journeys which they love. The children also have their own planning board, this gives all children a voice and a sound involvement in their own learning and development.
