Key Person Policy:

A key person system is implemented into the nursery setting.  Each qualified staff member is allocated to become a key person to a group of children within the nursery.  The key person system enables staff to observe and assess the children for their learning journey records, which are regularly updated.

This system enables a key person to provide individual attention to children on a one to one basis, the key person will have detailed knowledge of a child’s progress and development and will be able to discuss the child’s development with parents.

We appoint a key person to work with each special educational needs child, to observe and assess the child so that an individual education plan can be established and maintained.  See SEN policy for more detailed information.
