Special needs

The Barna-Bus Pre-School aims to provides an environment for all children to reach their full potential, including children with Special or Additional Educational Needs. 

Children experiencing difficulties or requiring additional support will be given special attention from all staff, particularly the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo). 
The Barna-Bus Pre-School SENCo is Hilary Welland. 

The SENCo and Key Person will work in partnership with parents to establish an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) to meet the specific needs for the unique child, outlining their strengths and showing clear targets to work towards.  Where necessary, and with full parental consent, the Barna-Bus Pre-School may signpost to specialist agencies such as Speech and Language or Specialist Teaching Services.’

The Barna-Bus Pre-School works to the requirements of current legislation, including:

SEN Code of Practice (2001) (Green Paper Review 2011- 2012 awaiting consultation review)
The Disability Discrimination Act (2005)
The Childcare Act (2006)
The Equality Act (2010)
