General Details

abc Preschool opened in 2002 and operates from purpose-built premises in the grounds of the Primary School in Stratford St Mary. Stratford St Mary is a rural village in Suffolk. We are run by a committee and are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.  Our Ofsted inspection, October 2018 rated us as Outstanding in all areas.  

The premises have suitable access and facilities for the disabled. The setting comprises of two working classrooms (one incorporating a kitchen area), a foyer, an office and a toileting area, including nappy changing facilities. Our outside area comprises of a large garden, approximately 80ft long, which has a climbing frame with slide and house, mud kitchen, water wall, pirate ship, low level climbing frame, music wall, bug hotel, natural and sensory herb garden with vegetable patch.  We like to be outside quite a bit during our school day and are also lucky to have an outside classroom which is situated next to the main building.

The Preschool can support children who have Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities and those for whom English is an additional language. We have spaces from ages two to rising five years.  The Setting is open each week day from 08:45 – 15:00.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We provide an environment in which all children with special educational needs (SEN) are supported to reach their full potential.

We have regard for the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2014) and will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to the environment and our setting in line with the Code of Practice 2014.

  • We have in place a clear approach for identifying, responding to, and meeting children’s SEN[1].
  • We support and involve parents (and where relevant children), actively listening to, and acting on their wishes and concerns.
  • We work in partnership with the local authority and other external agencies to ensure the best outcomes for children with SEN and their families.
  • We regularly monitor and review our policy, practice and provision and, if necessary, make adjustments. 
  • We ensure that the provision for children with SEN is the responsibility of all members of the setting.
