Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

Scope quality inclusion accreditation

Little Rascals are proud to have been awarded the “Scope quality inclusion” accreditation mark. Scope recently visited us to renew our award and inspect our inclusive provision. Achieving this award validates our practices and procedures are inclusive to all children, families, and employees.

“Brax has settled into Nursery well, all the staff are fantastic with Brax and he looks forward to coming in on a morning. His communication and concentration has really improved.”

Little Rascals provides specialist care to children with special needs and disabilities.

Each Nursery has a nursery SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) who are highly trained by the local authority and Little Rascals to support each child. We aim to ensure all individual needs are met.

We also employ a SEND coordinator who works across sites to support, train and ensure standardisation of provision.

Each child will receive an individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, which have adapted equipment and materials within accessible areas. We have policies and procedures in place. We review these regularly ensuring all our resources and environments are suitable and accessible.

“We feel as parents Little Rascals has helped my child progress in her learning. She now knows how to share and mix with other children. She has come on leaps and bounds with her speech. We would recommend Little Rascals to any parent who are looking for a nursery. ”
