Special Educational and additional needs

Working so closely with your child from such a young age and from making detailed observations and assessments, we are well placed to observe a child who may need additional support in one or more areas. Any member of staff who has a concern regarding your child’s development will raise this with the nursery special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO), who will then discuss this with you. Between you, the SENCO and your child’s key person, a course of action will be agreed.

If following this course of action, it is felt it may be necessary to seek further advice and assistance from outside professionals, we will obtain your consent to do so. In this eventuality, we respectfully request that you seriously consider this input, as we are all working towards supporting and encouraging your child to allow them to reach their full potential.

Confidentiality will be maintained at all times and no decisions will be made without your prior consent. More detailed information can be found in our special and additional needs policies and procedures, available at the nursery.
