Children with additional needs

As part of our policy to make sure that our provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any additional needs a child may have. Our Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is Stacey Scott.

Riccall Pre-school works to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2015).

Our practitioners are trained in using basic Makaton Signing and two have undergone higher level training. Three practitioners have portage training.

Our experience covers looking after children on the autistic spectrum, and those with cerebal palsy, global delay, and speech and language delay. All children aged from two to five years in age are welcome at Riccall Pre-School.
