We ensure that the provision for children with SEN/disabilities or AEN is the responsibility of all members of staff within the nursery. We have a nursery SENco who attends regular training and they are made aware of any concerns, alongside the manager. Staff plan for every child as an individual taking in to consideration their needs including those with SEN or AEN, like and dislikes, development and abilities. Parents play such a vital role and we ensure that they are part of the process throughout and endeavour to communicate as much as possible.
- Identifying children's needs
- Dedicated contacts
- To ensure that the staff in the nursery are familiar with the policy and understand their responsibilities to children with SEN and AEN and our company approach to identifying and meeting SEN.
- To offer advice and support as required and to provide relevant training opportunities as required throughout the nursery.
- To ensure parents are closely involved throughout and that their insights inform actions taken by the nursery.
- To liaise with parents and other professionals or agencies in respect of children with SEN and AEN.
- To ensure appropriate record keeping, observation and assessment procedures are in place and are up to date. To ensure appropriate differentiation is in place, IEPs (if applicable) are being implemented and children’s progress and records are reviewed on a regular basis.
- To assist in the completion of any necessary paperwork to support a child’s application for an education, health and care needs assessment and plan (EHC plan).

We make use of Makaton signing, PECS, Visual timetable, objects of reference and visual aids to support children’s speech and language and social communication development.
- Support and training for school staff
Kids Inc Nurseries are committed to training for all staff. Staff also have opportunities to discuss practice, policies and procedures in monthly staff meetings. Alongside this staff are asked about any concerns or issues they may have in their supervisions that take place every 3 months. Currently we have a nursery SENco in place who has undertaken the relevant Redbridge training and the nursery manager has completed a Level 4 course in relation to SEN.
- Accessibility of the school
The setting is partially accessible to children with SEND.
- Transition arrangements
We ensure that all SEN and AEN support must include planning and preparing for transition, before a child moves into another department within the nursery, into another early years setting or goes to school. This will include a review of the support being provided or the EHC plan. To support the transition, information will be shared with the new setting or school, the information being shared will be agreed with the parents as part of the planning process. Some of our children attend other settings in addition to our nursery. With parental permission, we contact the other settings that their child attends and try to share information to ensure continuity of support. When the child leaves our nursery, their individual profile will be passed on to their parents to give to the school or new setting that their child will be attending. These transfer documents will, when applicable, include previous IOPs and outcomes set for the child. We are always happy to contribute to transition planning meetings with schools and other settings, and explain to parents of children with SEN and AEN that we are happy to facilitate such meetings.
