Ann Bernadt Inclusion Statement
We at Ann Bernadt are fully committed to giving all our children access to high quality early years education, recognising the importance of laying a firm foundation for later learning. Our aim is to provide a rich and relevant curriculum through play. We are dedicated to inclusion and our strength lies in responding to children’s diverse learning needs. We actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation which hinder or exclude children.
We understand that children who have special educational needs may require adult support in order to access the curriculum and make progress. Where appropriate we provide additional input through allocation of trained Special Educational Needs Support Workers and targeted support through individual and group work. Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are devised in collaboration with parents/carers to ensure that each child is suitably catered for. We recognise the importance of parents/carers as children’s primary educators, and are dedicated to working in partnership with them.
Our belief is that the achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter. We provide suitable learning challenges for each child based on our knowledge of their interests, learning styles, and schematic play. All of our children’s progress is assessed against the Early Years Foundation Stage to ensure a consistent approach. Our wish is to see all children reach their full potential through tailored learning approaches which take account of their varied life experiences and needs.
We promote individuality and celebrate the achievements of all our children irrespective of age, ethnicity, disability, gender or background. We recognise the importance of transition and embrace a child-centred approach in collaboration with receiving schools, facilitating children’s success.
