Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Local Offer

 Here at Kingswood Nursery we believe in inclusion for disabled children and children with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

The Nursery is accessible with parking directly outside.

We strive to provide an environment in which all children are supported to reach their full potential with a focus on ‘Special Educational Needs Code of Practice’. Using the EYFS ( Early years foundation stage) we plan with your child’s specific needs in mind. This allows the SENCO, the ENCO and all Key workers to identify any specific learning outcomes and plan accordingly.

We aim to offer excellence and choice to all of our children regardless of their abilities, religion, culture or back ground to ensure they feel valued within the Nursery environment. All staff respond to the child’s; parents; careers and family members needs.

The nursery ensures that we are up to date on regulations regarding Policies and Procedures, offering our staff regular training such as safe guarding and first aid.

Kingswood Nursery liaises with a number of outside agencies including Essex County Council, Local Children’s centres and SENCO.

Records are kept of all SEN children confidentially.

The role of the SENCO within the nursery is to manage the day to day operation of the SEN policy, making colleagues, parents and carers aware of all policies and supply knowledge and support where needed.
