At Kendal Nursery School we celebrate all children’s uniqueness and identify how we respond to their individuality and meet their specific needs. Children with special educational needs or additional needs may need additional strategies to support their learning.

Help is provided in school, sometimes with the help of external specialists. If your child has a special educational or additional need, they may find the following things challenging, for example:

·      expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying

·         a sensory or physical need may affect them in school

·         making relationships with children and adults

·         becoming independent and organising themselves

·  accessing the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum, in particular the three Prime Areas – Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language; Physical Development

·         learning how to behave appropriately in Brantfield.

Staff work closely with parents throughout their child’s care and education. We take account of the wishes, feelings and knowledge of parents and encourage them to make an active contribution to their child’s education. Initial discussions with parents and staff enable us to plan any subsequent actions. These could include adapting our provision so it is more easily accessible to the child or involving other professionals eg. Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors. Parents/carers are a central part of this whole process.
