At Hythe Bay Nursery Children’s Centre Nursery, we follow a Graduated Approach:
We use universal strategies such as Makaton signing and visual timelines to support all children, but these can have an especially positive impact on children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We have disabled parking pays and our building has wheelchair access. We assess all children four times a year, to see how they are developing and learning, and to highlight areas which we could focus on to help them with. If a parent has any queries or concerns of their own, we encourage them to discuss these with their Key Person or Special Education Needs and Disabilities Coordinator.
If we feel a child might benefit from further support at a targeted level, their Key Person will discuss this with the child's parents. The Key Person and/or the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator will work with parents to plan strategies more specific to the child’s needs. We will make suitable adjustments to support and include each child. We might ask parents for permission to discuss support for the child with an Equality and Inclusion Advisor and/or at a Local Inclusion Forum Team (LIFT) Meeting, or to refer them to a Speech and Language Therapist, to ensure we are giving the best support.
Finally, for children who would benefit from having personalised support, we work with parents and professionals to form a personalised plan and make appropriate adjustments to our environment and practice, to ensure our nursery is inclusive and meets the child’s individual needs. We will follow advice from professionals such as Equality and Inclusion Advisors, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and the Specialist Teaching and Learning Service. We might also apply to receive Special Educational Needs Inclusion Funding or Disability Access Funding, to help us provide the best service we can for the child. We can also work with parents and professionals to apply for a Educational Health Care Plan if appropriate.
Our staff have experience of working with children who have a range of special education needs, disabilities and additional educational needs, including speech and language difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Myotonic Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, english as an additional language and behaviour management, They use their knowledge from training and other professionals to set suitable targets for children and help them achieve them, We have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinators (Vicki and Carly), an English as Additional Languages Champion (Radka) and a Positive Behaviour Management Champion (Chloe). Staff members and parents can meet with them for advice and support.
