Special Educational Needs and Disability

Mrs. A. Carruthers is the SEND Governor.


Stoneyholme Nursery School is an inclusive school and we welcome all children from the community. Children develop and learn in different ways. Learning and development depends on each unique child having opportunities to interact in positive relationships and experiences in enabling environments.

The EYFS statutory framework covers the education and care of all children in the early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities. Many children throughout their school life may need special help at some times.             

Our staff team have a wealth of experience of supporting a wide range of additional educational needs and disabilities.

As your child goes through nursery you may have concerns about their progress and development or your child’s Key Person will talk to you about your child and may ask your permission to seek some additional advice e.g. from a Speech and Language Therapist.

Some children may experience more persistent difficulties and in this case we will talk about the best way of providing support in line with our policy for SEND.

We provide an exciting, creative and effective learning environment, recognising and responding to individual needs, interests and learning styles.

We are committed to ensuring that pupils with additional needs and special educational needs can fulfil their potential and achieve optimal educational outcomes. 

We adopt a ‘whole school approach’ to special educational needs and we ensure inclusion of all pupils. We are committed to inclusion within the school curriculum and participation in all aspects of school life. We seek to provide a safe and fully equipped learning environment which caters to the needs of every child as an individual.

Please see the Policies section for the school's SEND Policy, SEND Information Report and Accessibility Plan.
