Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

Fontmell Magna Under Fives preschool provides a welcoming and fully inclusive early year provision. We aim to offer a safe environment where children can learn and thrive through play. Our building is fully accessible to wheelchair users and has low windows and double doors to the outside area which is also very accessible. We have disabled toilet facilities. FMU5’s (Fontmell Magna's Under Fives) have 2 members of staff who are trained SENCO’s and they have training in PEIC-D (Promoting early Interactive Conversation – Dorset), sign-a-long, I can talk, sensory processing, A.S.D training, Wellcomm Speech and Language tool kit training and inclusion. Our staff are always proactive with their training and try to attend courses that are relevant to the children’s needs that are in their care. The SENCO will work closely with children, parents/carers and the child’s keyworker to support them, so that the child can reach their full potential while attending our pre-school and support the transition when moving onto primary school. The SENCO will provide children with an individual plan if required and this will be reviewed with parents every 3 months or earlier if required. We work in partnership with the local authority and other external agencies including portage, speech and language and health visitors to ensure the best outcomes for children with SEND and their families. We fully support children with an EHC plan. Staff are first aid trained and if a child has a medical condition we will seek out training and advise in order to have a better understanding of how to care for this child
