Each class of children (including Butterflies; our 2 year old room) has a qualified teacher responsible for the care and education of each individual child in their care.
Our head teacher and SENDco have language and communication degrees, and other teaching staff have experience of working in specialist schools. Our SENDco has the national award for SEND. All practitioners receive regular SEND updates and training, many practitioners have full 10 week ELKLAN accredited under 5 speech and language training and are MAKATON trained. This is used daily throughout the setting. Some staff have specific expertise in early developmental play JABADAO (specialist early physical development). Others have VIG, THERAPLAY or THRIVE training. All classes have a specific extra trained practitioner to offer support. Specialist nurture is provided as well as in house weekly speech and language support for children and their families.
We are an inclusive setting and work closely with families and other professionals to support all children's individual needs. Some of these needs may include the following:
Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Mental Health Conditions
