Key persons

Every child deserves to be special to someone and the Keyperson Approach recognises this. Your child will have a Keyperson who will work closely with your family to ensure they know your child well and understand their needs, giving them a sense of belonging. They will build a familiar, affectionate and trusting relationship you can rely upon, but at the same time, be good role models for fun, friendship, caring, education and positive behaviour! It provides the child with a sense of security so that they feel confident to explore their world and form further relationships.

The Keyperson Approach is one of the vital principles in the Early Years Foundation Stage.  It is a reciprocal relationship between a member of staff, individual child and their family. Your child's keyperson will know each individual key child and support their sense of identity and individuality.  They will be aware of their individual and family needs, preferences and development.
