Description

The development of all children is important to us and we have a policy in place to support children with additional needs and understand that this would include special educational needs, disabilities and those requiring additional help, in order to gain the full benefit of our setting.  We have regard to the Special Education Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice 0-25 years and endeavour to support all of our children through the graduated response by identifying, assessing and responding to the needs of the individual child.   We aim to make reasonable adjustments to our practices in order to ensure the inclusion of all children.  We work in partnership with parents, as well as other agencies, to support both the child's learning within the setting and at home.  When appropriate, we seek additional funding through a variety of sources, including North Somerset Early Years Inclusion Top-up funding and the Disability Access Fund (DAF), and use this money as appropriate to support the child.  This could include specific and specialised resources, staffing and training.  We ensure that as appropriate, the child is always involved in decisions about their provision.
