Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

The Little Pennies Pre-school is housed in a purpose built wooden building all on one level, within the grounds of the First School. The Pre-school Manager is the nominated SENCO and we also have a named Deputy SENCO. The setting has wide doorways to allow for easy wheelchair access and an accessible toilet. We have a robust Key Person system in place who is assigned to you and your child, who is responsible for the pastoral care and ensuring learning and development is relevant to your child. We have an induction process which involves you informing us of your child's needs through registration forms and discussions during the settling in period. Through observation and assessment, your child's development is monitored and any concerns would be discussed with you. A decision would be made with you as to whether any additional internal or external support should be considered and agencies contacted if appropriate. A Person Centred Plan (PCP), risk assessment and medical plan would be put in place if appropriate and a graduated approach would be followed to Assess, Plan, Do and Review, ensuring you are involved at every stage. If you have concerns about your child, you can discuss it with your child's key person or SENCO at any time. Once assessment has taken place, the key person and other agencies will ensure that the plan is followed and reviewed as appropriate and discussed with you, and specialist training will be sought as required.
