We use a variety of methods to inform you about what is happening at nursery and to update you on your child’s progress. These include:
Parent workshops/coffee mornings
… in addition to regular communication from Nursery School.
Children attend nursery five sessions per week. It is important for their learning and progress that they attend all five sessions. There are 16 places available in the SSC. Eight children attend the morning sessions, and eight attend the afternoon sessions.
Morning sessions are from 8.45am – 11.45am
Afternoon sessions are from 12.45pm – 3.45pm
Transition to school
Either before, or at the time of referral to the SSC, your child will be referred to the Early Years Planning and Review Meeting (EY PARM) to determine whether they will need extra support in school. This may lead to an assessment by an Educational Psychologist.
When children leave the SSC at the end of the summer term to go to school, they transfer to either their allocated primary/ first school, a mainstream SSC, or a school for children with wider learning needs. School options will be discussed after your child starts in the SSC. If required, the SLT will visit your child’s school during the first half-term to help with the settling process and discuss targets with staff.
