SEND Policy, Local Offer & Safeguarding
We provide equal opportunities for all our children and families from the outset and until a child leaves us. However in line with the new Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) code of practice: 0 to 25 years we need to specify information on provision, pathways to services and support you can expect to be available for children who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilites with or without Education Health and Care plans (this is known as our Local Offer):
  • Regular observations, assessments and reviews to monitor and record development
  • Early identification and support for children with additional needs
  • Adapting the curriculum to suit and meet the needs of individual children
  • Having well established two-way communication systems in place 
  • An inclusive setting which is accessible and well planned with improvements made to the auditory and visual environment
  • Keeping the child the central focus and ensuring their voices are heard and their rights are protected
  • A good reputation for excellent support and work with children and families
  • Positive feedback from families and teachers following transition to school
  • A vast wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience which enables us to support children and their families 
  • On-going training for designated staff to provide a continued level of support
  • Seeking training for key staff as appropriate to support children's needs
  • In-house training to cascade knowledge on diversity and inclusion
  • Access to and good links with outside agencies, specialist services and expertise
  • Open door policy for parents/carers, families and outside agencies to visit, observe, work or spend time with the children
  • Regular reviews of plans which include child, family and other professionals
