Where children discover learning through play
Supporting your child
Our setting has a duty under the law to help safeguard children against suspected or actual ‘significant harm’. Our strict employment practices ensure against the likelihood of abuse in our settings and we have a procedure for managing complaints or allegations against a member of staff. Our way of working with children and their parents encourages communication so we are aware of any problems that may emerge and can offer support, including referral to appropriate agencies when necessary, to help families in difficulty.
Our Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Sam Adams
Special Educational Needs
Brighton and Hove Local Authority must publish a Local Offer, setting out in one place information about provision they expect to be available across education, health and social care for children and young people in their area who have SEND or are disabled, including those who do not have Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans. In setting out what they ‘expect to be available’, local authorities should include provision which they believe will actually be available.
The Local Offer has two key purposes:
• To provide clear, comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date information about the available provision and how to access it, and
• To make provision more responsive to local needs and aspirations by directly involving disabled children and those with SEN and their parents, and disabled young people and those with SEN, and service providers in its development and review
Early Explorers make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child by taking into account any special needs a child may have. The setting works to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and the SEN Code of Practice 2014. We liaise closely with parents if there any concerns either from home or at the setting.
