SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability)

At Little Owls we have high aspirations and expectations of children with SEND, having an inclusive approach to our practice.

“High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some children and young people need educational provision that is additional to or different from this…” SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years (2015) paragraph 1.24

Information about Cambridgeshire’s local offer can be found by clicking here and you can also look at the range of services available in the local offer directory

Kayleigh Kearns, our Manager, is our SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) so please speak to her or your child’s key person if you would like any support or advice.

When your child is ill


A guide to symptoms can be found on the NHS website

We also follow the Public Health guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings

Most importantly your child should not return to preschool until all the spots have crusted over.  This is usually 5 days after the spots first appear.

If you have any question or queries please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
