We are committed to meeting the needs of all children including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the nursery prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned and implemented. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure that the nursery can meet any needs appropriately.
Further information can be found in the school Admissions Policy that can be found in the School Policies section of our website.
