Key Person Approach
Each child will be given a Key Person as they begin their time at Abercromby.
This is their very own special grown up, who will spend time getting to know your child, their abilities and learning needs, and building warm trusting relationships with their family, helping them to settle in and make secure attachments.
The Key Person will record your child’s learning and progress through a Learning Journal (see Tapestry) and ensure that every child’s learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs. The key person will support a 2 way communication with families and advise in how to guide their child’s development at home. They will also help families engage with more specialist support if appropriate.
Your child’s Key Person will arrange termly appointments to have a chat about how your child is doing. However, please feel free to have a word at any time, if you want to talk about a concern or share some good news! We have an open door policy, which means we want to be readily available for you. Normally the beginning and end of the day are good times to catch us.
If you’re not sure who your child’s Key Person is, just ask – or look at the InfoTV in the hallway, or the Key Person display in each room.
