52. Two Year Progress Review report
This feature offers you the function to produce a detailed Two Year Assessment for the children in your setting, prior to their 2.5 year check with the Health Visitor.
It is now a legal requirement for childminders to produce a written report, when a child turns 2 in their setting, to summarise their child's development in the prime areas.
This progress check must identify the child’s strengths, and any areas where the child’s progress is less than expected. If there are significant emerging concerns, or an identified special educational need or disability, practitioners should develop a targeted plan to support the child’s future learning and development involving parents and/or carers and other professionals (for example, the provider’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator or health professionals) as appropriate.
Beyond the prime areas, it is for practitioners to decide what the written summary should include, reflecting the development level and needs of the individual child.
The summary must highlight: areas in which a child is progressing well; areas in which some additional support might be needed; and focus particularly on any areas where there is a concern that a child may have a developmental delay (which may indicate a special educational need or disability). It must describe the activities and strategies the provider intends to adopt to address any issues or concerns. If a child moves settings between the ages of two and three it is expected that the progress check would usually be undertaken by the setting where the child has spent most time. Practitioners must discuss with parents and/or carers how the summary of development can be used to support learning at home.
Practitioners should encourage parents and/or carers to share information from the progress check with other relevant professionals, including their health visitor.
