Special Educational Needs Policy

Cippenham Baptist Pre-School is committed to providing equality of opportunity for all children and families. We believe that no child, individual or family should be excluded from the activities because the child has special needs or disabilities.  Cippenham Baptist Pre-School adheres to the SEN Code of Practice and Disability Discrimination Act.

 

Teaching and Learning

Graduated Response - Assess, plan, do and review

A Keyperson at the setting will assess your childs stage of development through observations at Pre-School and of course those made by families.

These observations will identify the needs of the child and inform planning for the individual child's next steps.

This might include a Play Plan that has strategies to support the child both at home and at the setting or involvement from outside agencies.

The Keyperson and families will have the support of the SENCO at the setting and may advise involvement from outside agencies such as the Area SENCO or Speech and Language Therapy.

Along with families and including the child's views wherever possible, information is regularly reviewed to best meet the needs of the child.

Identifying and Assessing Special Educational Needs

If a child has a special need or disability, three principles will be observed:

  • The Keyperson and SENDCO make any adjustments necessary to ensure that the individual child can access experiences available at Pre-School.  This could mean  one to one support or support from outside agencies for example.
  • Where available the team will undertake additional training in order to understand and support the childs individual needs.
  • The Keyperson and SENDCO regularly review the individual child's needs with families.
Involving Parents and Children and Young People in Planning and Reviewing Progress

At Cippenham Baptist pre school we recognise parents as children's first educators who have a wealth of knowledge about their child.  We aim to work with our families in order to best support the needs of the individual child. In planning and reviewing progress with families we aim for the children in our care to reach their next developmental milestone.  Sharing information is supported through regular parents evenings and termly reports

We have designated Special Education Needs Coordinators (SENDCO) who are responsible for co-ordinating day to day provision with special needs.  They will also be responsible for drawing up and reviewing individual education plans, taking into account the individual child's needs and families wishes.  This may include the involvement of outside agencies. We have the most knowledge about their child and the childcare team will work alongside families to support their childrens needs. 

 

Additional Support

We have two designated Special Education Needs Coordinators (SENDCO) in the Pre-School and the support of SEN Advisors from the Slough Early Years Team.  If necessary we will liaise with and share information with external agencies.  This may include Children's Services or Speech and Language Therapy for example.

Meeting the Social and Emotional Needs of Children and Young People with SEN

Activities are adapted to ensure the inclusion of all children.  Advise may be requested from outside agencies such as the Area SEN team.

 

Keeping Up to Date with Knowledge and Skills

The childcare team attend specific training which allow them to bring back strategies to the setting ensuring our policies and practices are up to date with current good practice and current legislation.

The team also attend statutory safeguarding and First Aid Courses.

Transitions

We encourage visits before a child starts at the Pre-School.  At the visit we can discuss any changes required to the setting/teaching and make adjustments where possible before the child starts.   

We welcome visits from the new school/setting into Pre-School.  Where possible, we can arrange visits to other local settings. 

We will share, with your permission, all information with a new school/setting. Copies of learning journals, reports, notes from parents evenings or other meetings are provided to the parents to share with a new setting.
