SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS POLICY

Sunny Day care has a commitment to inclusion.

We aim to:

  • Understand difficulties and recognise and respect individual differences.
  • Offer a wide range of learning and teaching experiences which enable children to become more independent, and include them in whole group life.

We will not accept attitudes, language or behaviour that discriminates against children because of their needs, disabilities or abilities.

Care and learning program will be offered to children with special needs which suits their individual needs according to the principals underlined in Code of practice.

We will co- operate with the Local Authority to help fulfil its duty to publish in the Local Offer a description of the provision available in our setting.

Ongoing formative assessment is in place in order to identify and respond to SEN or disabilities and to promote equality of opportunities for children in our care.

When SEN or disability is identified we involve other professionals such as setting’s SENCO or Area SENCO.

Health Authority personnel will be contacted to work with children. For example the Physiotherapist, Speech Therapist and Occupational Therapy services.

We work in close partnership with parents to support child’s needs.

SEN support includes planning and preparing for transition.
We review our equipment to make sure we provide support across the four broad areas of SEN.
If you are concerned about your child’s development, please do not hesitate to discuss this with us in first instance.
