Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Special Educational needs and Disabilities (SEND) policy                               

As an Ofsted registered Childminder, I aim to follow the requirements of EYFS (2014) and the Childcare Register (2012) and provide an inclusive environment for ALL children and their families. I am also requite to comply with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and the SEND Code of Practice 2014

I will do this by:

  • Regularly talking to parents/carers about the individual needs of each child
  • Talking to children about their likes/dislikes and interests
  • Encouraging parents to tell me about family culture/religion/beliefs
  • Providing a wide range of resources and activities which reflect the diversity of our local area and further afield
  • Supporting each child through sensitive observation, regular assessment and individually planned activities to achieve their full potential
  • Providing individual support depending on child’s needs
  • Using the 2 year progress check to highlight any areas of concern
  • Focusing on the positive things that each child can do
  • Challenging any forms of prejudice
  • Providing resources which challenge stereotypical ideas
  • Sharing information with parents/carers about children’s learning and development- and providing ideas for home learning-as required by EYFS 2014
  • Seeking permission to ask for support from outside agencies where appropriate
  • Attending appropriate training to ensure I have skills and knowledge that needed to support children and their families
  • Encourage children to respect each other as individuals

If I believe a child needs additional support, I will speak to parents and ask their permission to approach agencies which will support their child. I will follow the graduate approach set out in the Department for Education SEND Code of Practice to ensure every child receives the best possible care, learning and development
