"This is the best nursery ever, my child has complex needs but the staff were amazing all the way. Sarah was an incredible help as she has literally walked with me along the way through the whole procedure regarding the EHCP and choosing a school. All the staff have been incredible, too many to name. I especially appreciate the dedication from her key worker" (Parent 2022)
Everyone is welcome at Newtown Nursery School...
At Newtown Nursery School we believe that all children are entitled to have their individual needs appropriately supported in order to fully participate in nursery life and to achieve their highest potential across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We believe in a 'can do approach' where positive solutions are sought to ensure children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities are treated equally and can learn alongside their peers. All staff hold high expectations for all children including those with SEND. Teaching is carefully planned and based on building on what your child already knows, can do and can understand. This is differentiated to meet the needs of all children. Children's learning and progress is closely tracked.
Our named SENCO is Rachel Ryan who is responsible for the day to day provision of education for children with SEND. The named governors with responsibility for SEND are Lorna Rose (Cluster) and Laura Brodie (Federation).
At Newtown Nursery School we are committed to:
- Ensuring an entitlement for ALL children to a broad, relevant and differentiated curriculum reflecting children's cultural background, interests and aptitudes.
- The earliest possible identification of a child's SEND.
- Involving parents/carers from the onset, ensuring they are fully involved in decisions about their child.
