Hindpool Nursery School is an inclusive school which welcomes all children and values uniqueness. We do our very best to ensure that all our children are included in all aspects of learning and school life throughout their time with us.
The term ‘Special Educational Needs’ refers to children who have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. Help is usually provided in school sometimes with the help of external specialists. If your child has a special educational need they may have help in a range of areas for example:-
- Expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying.
- Some kind of sensory or physical need, which may affect them in school.
- Making friends or relating to adults.
- Gaining independence and organising themselves.
- Accessing the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum, in particular the three Prime Areas:- Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development.
- Managing their own behaviour
Here at Hindpool Nursery School we aim to:-
- Provide a caring, stimulating, safe, secure and healthy environment to meet the individual needs of all our children.
- Encourage children to develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, spiritually and morally, enabling them all to make a positive contribution.
- Provide a balanced and broadly based curriculum which covers all the seven areas of learning through planned, purposeful and enjoyable play to enable all children to achieve.
- Encourage children’s self-confidence, co-operation and promote independence to develop positive learning skills to enable them to further their education.
- Develop and extend our services, working in partnership with others to meet the needs of all the children and their families.
"He's learnt so much in his time and staff keep us updated on his progress
so we feel as much apart of his education as they do" - Parent's comment 2020
The decision to provide extra help and support for a child is made by the school following discussions with parents and sometimes other professionals e.g. Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors. Any decision may be based on a number of factors including academic progress and/or assessments carried out by the teaching staff or other professionals. Parents/Carers will always be consulted and informed when this happens. If you would like to speak to us about your child's needs please contact us on 01229 833120.
