Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator
We are highly committed to supporting our SEND children. We use several means of resources these include our own SENCo (special educational need co-ordinator) and area SENCo.
Our Preschool SENCo's are Kelly Stallwood and Gaynor Baker.
Every child is linked to a key worker in our setting who will observe the child on a daily basis and provide the appropriate resources best suited for the child’s next step. Using our observations which cover the seven areas of learning from the EYFS, we can clearly identify if a child has any additional needs.
We have good links with health visitors who visit us regularly. We will also support the child with other outside agencies e.g. health visitors, nursery nurses, educational psychologist, specialist teachers, occupational therapy, speech therapists and the local children’s centres.
We listen to the child engaging their opinion, likes and dislikes. We have opportunities for the children to engage one to one with their key workers and small group time. All information is communicated throughout the team so that all staff members are able to provide the best support for your child.
We regularly review our processes and ask for feedback from our parents, and whether they are happy with the services provided.
