This policy represents the agreed principles for Tomorrow’s Leaders. All Nursery staff have agreed to this policy.
At Tomorrow’s Leaders Nursery we take great pride in our unrivalled ability to offer a wide and challenging curriculum that provides all children with teachers who specialize in the creative aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are fortunate to have talented musicians on our staff team. This enables us to offer each child expert additional music lessons where they experience instruments being played to accompany singing times. These sessions are often a child’s first experience of live music, and we believe it contributes to their musical success later on in their schooling. The vast majority of Tomorrow’s Leaders children are encouraged to play at least one instrument. Our Christmas and summer concerts are always great fun, and they bring our children and parents together to celebrate learning.
Children with Special Educational Needs have learning difficulties that call for special provisions to be made. All children may have special needs at some time in their lives. Children may have special educational needs if they have significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children the same age, or if they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities that are provided for children of the same age.
At Tomorrow’s Leaders, SENCO manages the day-to-day operation of our policies, coordinates the provisions for and manages the responses to children’s special needs. They also support and advise colleagues, oversee the records of all children with Special Educational Needs, act as link with external agencies and other support agencies, monitor and evaluate the Special Educational Needs provisions, manage a range of resources, human and material, to enable appropriate provisions for children with Special Education Needs, and contribute to the professional development of all staff. If you would like to discuss the group’s ability to meet your own child’s special needs please talk to Samantha McDevitt and Charlotte Figueira.
