Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

We work in conjunction with many outside agencies including: Speech and Language, Portage, Educational Psychologist, Paediatrician, Early Years Advisors and Local Opportunity Group. If your child attends another setting in the area we will contact them also to ensure continuity of care. At Pimperne preschool we recognise that every child is an individual and that all children develop at their own rate, we endeavour therefore, to meet their needs accordingly. We pride ourselves on being a friendly family oriented setting where the likes and needs of the individual are always taken into consideration. Children are encouraged with independent access of activities and resources and our planning process relies heavily on input from children. We promote good behaviour with encouragement and positive focus, dealing with negative behaviour but not dwelling on it. We have a Medications Policy, requiring parents to detail any medicines which need administering and a form for staff to fill in and be countersigned by parents on collection, after medication has been given. Medicine and dosage is always checked by two members of staff. All staff have up to date Paediatric First Aid training. We have a named Safeguarding Officer and all staff are required to attend safeguarding training. All staff are required to attend Practical Inclusion training. All staff must have a DBS (formally CRB) check before commencement of employment.
