Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Our aim at Rainbow Pre- School is to provide a fun, stimulating, safe environment for children to learn, which is inclusive to all. Some staff have many years of experience of supporting children with additional educational needs including children on: the Autistic Spectrum, with communication difficulties, physical disabilities, sensory difficulties and health conditions.

Each child has a key person who will work closely with the child and the family to link home and Pre-school to support the child's development. Children are recognised as being individuals and unique and their interests are considered when planning for play and learning. We use observation from children's learning to plan and differentiate activities to involve all children.

We have a trained member of staff as a designated SENDCO for the setting. The SENDCO will support children and families with Special Education Needs and Disability. This staff member is not considered in the staff ratios therefore, more time can be implemented to supporting children, families and staff regarding special education needs. We follow the guidelines of the SEND Code of Practice (2014) and have a graduated approach to supporting children's learning, we do this by; assessing children's progress, planning for their next steps in learning and considering how their learning has progressed.

All staff are trained in assessing and planning for children's learning through play and have experience of supporting children with a range of different learning styles. They work closely with the families and the SENDCO daily to ensure children's development is supported. A high proportion of staff are trained in Makaton and Makaton is used in the setting daily.

We work closely with other professionals to help children to progress effectively with their learning and supporting them to develop life long skills.
