The SEND Provision map sets out what support Greenfield Nursery School can offer to children in order to support their educational progress. The SEND provision map is unique to our school.

If you have concerns regarding your child’s development please contact our SENDCo Mrs Dorothy Fadairo. 

We have three levels of support (Waves):

Wave 1 (Universal): This is the support that we offer within the provision and it is available to all children. Here we may adapt the way we teach to fit individual children learning needs. This is ‘Quality First Teaching’. 

Wave 2 (Targeted): Here we may make adaptions to the nursery by introducing additional resources, additional staff input or additional small group booster work. Your child’s key worker with liaise with the Special Educational Needs & Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo) to set specific learning goals that ensures that your child is getting additional support. At this stage we may  refer to a specialist for further advice (Speech & Language therapist, Health Visitor, Family Centre or similar). 

Wave 3 (Specialist): This is our highest level of support. Only a very small proportion of the children attending Greenfield will be supported within this wave. Here the SENDCo will apply for additional high needs funding or start the process of applying of an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). It is likely that a child has a clinical diagnosis that requires ongoing support and therefore additional financial resources to support their learning.
