Special Educational Needs

Ofsted - May 2023 - "Provision for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is exemplary. Staff are skilled at identifying children's specific needs early. They use the expertise of therapists to put necessary adaptations in place. Because of this, children with SEND access the same curriculum as their peers. Children with SEND have the support they need to join in with all aspects of school life". 


What do James Lee Nursery offer? 

  • Highly skilled staff that engage in quality continuous professional development throughout the year. 
  • Bucket time attention building interventions. 
  • Welcomm speech and Language group interventions delivered by a trained teaching assistant. 
  • Individual SEND Support Plans for children who require them. 


Children who have a special educational need or disability may require a SEND support plan or an EHCP. Below is some information highlighting the differences between the two types of plans.
