Weston Way Nursery School

Special Educational Needs

Weston Way Nursery School welcomes all children.

Parents/carers are encouraged to inform us at the nursery if their child has any specific needs to ensure that appropriate considerations and adjustments can be made to meet their needs.   We welcome families to visit the nursery to see our provision and share any concerns they may have with the Headteacher/Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).

SEND Code of Practice 0-25 years (2015) 5.36:

There is no delay in making any necessary special educational provision and that Early action to address identified needs is crucial to the future progress and improved outcomes that are essential in helping the child prepare for adult life.

For some families, the term SENCO may be unfamiliar.  We hope the following leaflet provides a useful overview of the SENCO role giving an insight into the responsibilities of the role.  We feel passionate about ensuring every child has their needs met and take pride in each and every step we take in partnership with you.
