Special Educational Needs

Our aim at Gamesley Early Excellence Centre is to ensure that all children with special educational needs or a disability have access to a broad and balanced education and care, which will support their need to develop and learn in different ways and at different rates in order to enable them to meet their full potential.


All children who are identified as having special educational needs or disabilities are placed on the SEN register and a “graduated response” action plan is put in place. At the appropriate time a request for “statutory assessment” may be applied for by the SENCO, who is Anna Portman with the support of the Educational Psychologist. 


Children on the SEN register have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which is reviewed every term, alongside parents and other agencies.


We have a range of special facilities at the Centre including:


A sensory room, a tracking hoists and a therapy room. We aim to adapt and change wherever necessary to ensure we can meet the needs of all children who attend our Nursery.
