Special Educational Needs
At Ashworth Nursery we have an open door policy, welcoming families of varying abilities and needs. We follow the Special Needs Code of Practice (Sept ‘14’) as defined by the D.F.E and comply in accordance with the Children and Families Bill.
We work closely with a range of professionals e.g. Speech and Language Therapists, Local
Authority Advisory Teachers, Educational Psychologists, many are regular visitors in school.
Staff support all children in accessing the full curriculum in the Nursery.
We have a Special Needs Co-ordinator, (SENDCo) - Mrs Burnside.
Where an additional need is identified, Parents/carers are respected as the main educator are involved at every step of the graduated response. We keep detailed records and hold regular reviews.
