Parent consultations

 

We hold two parent’s consultations a year where you will be invited to come in and meet with your child’s key person to discuss your child’s learning and development and to look at examples of your child’s work in their learning journals.  You can, of course, make an appointment at any time throughout the school year with your child’s key person and, if applicable, the setting's SENco (Special Educatonal Needs Coordinator) to discuss any aspects of your child’s life at preschool. 

 

Progress checks at the age of 2

In addition to our routine parents consultations we review the progress of all children in our care aged between two and three years and provide parents and/or carers with a short written summary of their child’s development in the prime areas of learning.  (The three prime areas of development are: 1) personal, social and emotional development, 2) communication and language development and 3) physical development.)  This progress check will help us to identify the child’s strengths and any areas where the child’s progress is less than expected.  These qualities will be discussed with the parent/carer along with any strategies for additional support that we will provide in the setting.  We will also discuss how the summary of development can be used to support learning at home.    If there are significant emerging concerns or an identified special educational need or disability we will develop a targeted plan to support the child’s future learning and development involving initially our SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) and if appropriate other external professionals.

 

Progress checks will usually be completed in time for one of our biannual parents’ consultations. This allows all children to have a settling in period that enables their key person and other practitioners to build up good knowledge of the child’s development, abilities and interests and allows time for us to listen to the child’s voice before completing the assessment.  However, we remain flexible and if parents request that the check is carried out at another time or if a child starts with us mid-term we will complete the check as soon as we have a good knowledge of the child’s development.  If a child moves settings between the ages of two and three or attends more than one setting the progress check will usually be undertaken by the setting where the child has spent most time. 

 

Parents are actively encouraged to share information from the progress checks to inform the Healthy Child Programme and developmental reviews undertaken by health visitors around the age of two and a half.
