Safeguarding

Although we are striving for excellence in learning, we have not become removed from the basic principles of child care. First and foremost it is imperative to us that we provide an environment that makes children feel safe, secure and respected. We encourage them to talk openly and give them every confidence that they will be listened to.

SEND - Special educational needs (SEN)

We welcome respect and value all children regardless of any additional educational needs.

We support their learning and ensure they are included in all nursery activities inside or out.

Each child in our care is seen as an individual and every effort is made to ensure that their needs are met.

We have our own dedicated SENCO who works with all members of staff to assist them in adopting a graduated response and an array of strategies to assist children who have special educational needs. This may also include working with outside specialists where appropriate.

The SEND Local Offer

The SEND local offer tells you what support is available for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, and their families.
