SEN Provision (Special Educational Needs)
Kempshott Under Fives is an inclusive preschool that is committed to equality. We aim for every pupil to fulfil their potential no matter what their needs. Our preschool is committed to anti-discriminatory practice; we promote equality of opportunity and value diversity for all children and families.
Types of SEN at Preschool
At Kempshott Under Fives we have experience in supporting children with a wide range of needs including Autistic Spectrum Disorder; speech, language and communication needs; specific learning difficulties; moderate learning difficulties; severe learning difficulties; hearing impairment; visual impairment and physical difficulties.
How do we identify and assess children with SEN?
Most children and young people will have their educational needs met at preschool through good practice. At Kempshott Under Fives we follow a graduated support approach, which is called ‘Assess, Plan, Do, Review’. This means that we will:
Assess a child’s special educational needs.
Plan the provision to meet your child’s aspirations and agreed outcomes.
Do put the provision in place to meet those outcomes.
Review the support and progress.
As part of this approach, we will introduce a SEN Support Plan that describes the provision that we will make to meet a child’s special educational needs and agreed outcomes. Parents and carers will be fully involved in this process.
A small percentage of children and young people with significant learning difficulties might need an assessment that could lead to an education, health and care plan. Full details can be found on the Local Offer website.
Pastoral Medical and Social Support
At Kempshott Under Fives we consult with a wide range of agencies and have the relevant partnerships to ensure pastoral, medical and social needs of SEN children are met. These may include speech and language therapists, paediatricians, educational psychologists, portage and Outreach support.
