Supporting Special Educational Needs at Redcliffe Nursery School .
A guide for parents/carers


Redcliffe Nursery School is committed to providing outstanding care, education and support to all our children and their families. We believe that everyone, including those identified as having special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them and that they will be fully included in all aspects of the Nursery.

We work hard to create a space across our nursery where communication can be open and honest. It is our mission that we strive to see things through the eyes of the child and therefore adopt practices that takes account of the child’s perspective and feelings. This makes all aspects of our provision sensitive and flexible to the needs and capacities of individual children and their families. We have high expectations of all children and see our nursery as a community that helps each child to grow, interdependent on each other.

We understand that a significant proportion of children will have special educational needs at some time in their school career. Some of these children may require help throughout their time in school, whilst others may need a little extra support for a short period to help overcome more short term needs, all of which are significant.
