Please contact the Pre school if you would like to talk about any difficulties that your child is experiencing in regard to special educational needs or to gain further information about SEND provision within our Setting,

Identification and monitoring of children with SEND.

Every child's progress is monitored closely by their Key person. If there are concerns a child is not making the expected progress then, in conjunction with the SENCo we will follow the Gloucestershire intervention guidance. This based on the Local Authority criteria.

With parents we will plan resources and strategies to support your child.

Staff and parents will meet regularly with the SENCo to discuss progress of your child and children are included in reviewing and discussing their own targets.


Small group or 1:1 interventions are available to target the following:

 speech and language difficulties

 communication difficulties

 behaviour, social and emotional difficulties

 children with English as an additional language EAL

 communication difficulties

Who provides interventions?

Play leader, Key person, SENCo or other professionals e.g. Speech and language therapists


When appropriate specific resources will be sourced e.g. special chairs, hearing support.

Involvement of parents

We encourage regular contact with parents of children with SEND. This can take the form of: informal progress meetings, designated parents' meetings, telephone calls, emails and communication books.

Parents will have an opportunity to discuss and review the children's targets and will receive a written copy.

Policies relating to SEND

SEND Policy, safeguarding, Behaviour and Equality and Inclusion.
