Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

The nursery has regard to the statutory guidance set out in the Special Educational Needs and Disability code of practice (DfE 2015) to identify, assess and make provision for children’s special educational needs. At Kiddiwinks Nurseries Ltd we use the SEND Code of Practice (2015) definition of Special Educational Needs and Disability:

A child or young person has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. We are committed to the inclusion of all children. All children have the right to be cared for and educated to develop to their full potential alongside their peers through positive experiences, to enable them to share opportunities and experiences and develop and learn from each other. We provide a positive and welcoming environment where children are supported according to their individual needs and we work hard to ensure no children are discriminated against or put at a disadvantage as a consequence of their needs. Each child’s needs are unique, therefore any attempt to categorise children is inappropriate.
