Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
SEND = Special Educational Needs and Disability
The Nursery School is an inclusive setting and we have systems to support children with additional needs. We use the ‘Leuven scale of well-being and involvement’ to support children with emotional needs. We have provision for children with special educational needs and disabilities and a programme of support is organized for them. Our building has disabled access and we have a sensory room. Visiting health professionals include: Educational Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Speech and Language Therapist.
The government has listened to what parents say their experience of services is like and have put in place a number of things to bring about improvements. One of these is the ‘Local Offer’.
