Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

 

At Ulceby Pre School, we aim to provide the very best care and early years’ education for all our children.

Our goal is to give children the best possible start in life, in order for them to reach their full potential. We therefore pride ourselves on being an inclusive setting, by recognising that all children should have the opportunity to experience a challenging and enjoyable programme of learning and development. Hence, we are keen to work with children with special educational needs and disabilities.

At Ulceby Pre-School, we comply and adhere to the SEND Code of Practice 2014, the Equality Act 2010, and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) 2014.

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in the early years is of paramount importance. We ensure early action is taken to identify and support with SEND and/or emerging needs. We have a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities policy, which details how we support children in practice, this includes how we use the ‘Graduated Approach’ to assess, plan, do (take action) and review, in making certain the effectiveness of the support being provided has a positive impact on a child’s progress.

The graduated approach is led and co-ordinated at Ulceby Pre-School by three trained SENCO’S who work closely with our practitioners to ensure children with additional needs/disabilities are supported thoroughly.
