Special Needs Support

At the Pre-School we have a fully qualified Special Educational Needs Officer who will contact any outside agencies,with the parents permission, if necessary. Over the years we have had several children that have needed our support and pride ourselves on the help that we have given them and their families.

Parents are kept fully informed about their child's needs and are invited to all meetings with any outside agencies that we feel are necessary. Parents should talk to their child's keyperson about any concerns they may have.

All children have a Keyperson and they will make individual plans for your child which will be shared with the parents/carer. These will regularly be shared with the parent/carer and action plans will be put in place if necessary. Our Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator oversees any planning that is needed and makes sure that it is reviewed regularly.

Each child has his or hers own individual needs and so how the teaching strategies differ would depend on what that child needs. We would do anything that is necessary to provide a safe and stimulating environment.

Every child at the Pre-School is valued and our fantastic Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator,who has many years experience, provides as much support as is needed. Your child will have a home contact book for your keyperson and yourself to use on a daily basis and regular meetings with the keyperson and SENCO will keep you updated at all times.

We do regular observations on each child to track their progress. Each child has a 2 year check, Unique Stories, Transition Forms ,which we share with you at regular intervals during our Open Days. Children are regularly asked for their views and these are always taken into account.

Our Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator  always makes contact with outside agencies to ask for their help to ensure that all children are included.

Our building has very good access for children with mobility difficulties and for wheelchair users.

We invite all teachers in to the setting to meet their children and take children to schools that invite us in. We share their latest Unique Story and provide them with transition forms. We invite parents in to chat about anything that they or their children are worried about.

We have many visual timetables and signs around the Pre-School for those children that need it. We have disabled toilets and disabled access for wheelchair users.

Please contact Michele Saunders

We have regular questionnaires that we ask parents to fill in to get feedback about the Pre-School so that we can make improvements.
