Special Educational Needs
Hartcliffe Nursery School & Children’s Centre is committed to providing outstanding care, education and support to all our children and their families. We believe that everyone, including those identified as having special educational needs and disabilities, have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them and that they will be fully included in all aspects of the Centre.
At Hartcliffe Nursery School & Children’s Centre we believe that all children and their families should be equally valued. We strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination and to develop an environment where everyone can flourish and feel safe. We work hard to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all children and their families.
We acknowledge that a significant proportion of children will have special educational needs at some time in their school career. Some of these children may require help throughout their time in school, whilst others may need a little extra support for a short period to help overcome more short term needs.
We believe that every teacher is a teacher of every child including those with special educational needs and disabilities.
