how we adapt the curriculum

and learning environment for children with SEN

We believe that inclusive education means supporting all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which includes a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning, personal growth and development of independence.

We understand that children learn and develop in different ways. The staff team recognise this and use different teaching styles, resources and different levels of work in the nursery to cater for the various ways children learn.

Some of the actions we may take to achieve this are:

  • help all children achieve to the best of their abilities, despite any difficulty or disability they may have

  • modify language presented to children by using visual prompts so instructions can be more easily understood

  • provide visual timetables to children so daily routines can be understood

  • modify the provision to meet individual needs, for example using additional resources to support joining in with group activities or quiet spaces to support listening and attention

  • ensure that teaching staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all children, through sharing good practice in staff meetings

  • offer additional resources/facilities to develop children’s interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum at an appropriate level

  • make suitable provision so that children with high needs can be provided with their own box of resources 

More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you ca find in the School Policies section of our website.
