Inclusion and Special Educational Needs
At Devizes Pre-school we feel committed to ensuring that all children are welcome and not disadvantaged because of culture, ethnicity, religion, family background, learning difficulties or disabilities. We aim to support all children’s needs by working with and alongside other professionals from a variety of agencies such as Speech & Language Therapy, following any targets they may introduce. We also use Makaton signs to help support children who have speech difficulties or are bi-lingual. Makaton is used along with speech with all children in the setting so that they can all benefit from the advantage of signing to support their communication and interaction with others.
Our Pre-school has two designated Special Educational Needs Coordinators (Sencos) who are responsible for putting in place any extra support for children who have been identified as needing this. This will be provided through play, with your consent and co-operation. Please speak to them, your key person or the Manager if you have any concerns about your child’s development.
