Inclusion Policy

We recognise that all children have the right to experience and participate fully, in rich and stimulating play opportunities

We aim to create a fully inclusive child-centred play environment which is open and accessible to all.

We aim to:

Provide adequate and appropriate childcare, taking into account the individual needs of all children using our provision.

Ensure, wherever possible, additional resources for children to ensure their full potential.

Work closely with parents/carers in order to share appropriate information on the child and to offer support where necessary.

Liaise and interact with outside agencies seeking advice and support as and when appropriate.

Attend SEN/disability training when available to build on professional development and inclusive practice.

Ensure that all children have equality of access and are encouraged to participate in every aspect of the provision.

Adapt the provision as far as possible to meet the needs of the children attending.

Empower all children through consultation and decision making.

Provide a range of activities and experiences which nurture and build on individual strengths and weaknesses.

Work within the guidelines as stated within the Disability Discrimination Act (1995)

Provide a safe and supportive play environment, in which the contribution of all children is valued and where racial, religious, disability and gender stereotypes are challenged.

Enable all children to access play and learning in all areas of their lives, i.e. socially, mentally, physically and emotionally.

We will continually review and seek to improve both our practice and policies in all areas which have an impact on creating inclusive play opportunities for children.
