Our Local Offer
Our Local offer provides information on the services available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) aged between 0 to 25 and how to access them. The information and services are for all children and young people with special educational needs that the local authority is responsible for, whether they have Educational, Health and Care (EHC) plans or not.
At Cranmore and Doulting Pre-School, We provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child to learn through play and develop at their own pace. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which helps prepare children for the National Curriculum which begins in Year 1 at primary school. Our themes and planning take into account all the seven areas of learning in order to provide the children with a balanced curriculum.
We are committed to offering a fully inclusive service to meet the needs of every child. We actively include all families and value the positive contribution they make to our Pre-School. Our SENCO works closely with both staff and parents to identify if a child needs extra support, plans are put in place to monitor the child’s progress.
