At New Beginnings children with special needs will be given equal opportunity to access all facilities, activities and play opportunities, where necessary specialist equipment will be accessed. Activities will be adapted to meet the needs of all children. We have two lead co-ordinators for SEN within the setting both hold a CACHE qualification in SEN.

Behaviour

Each child is recognised as an individual with their own individual needs and aspirations. It is recognised that the behaviour each child demonstrates is related to the child’s past and present experiences and environment along with attributes of their personality. New Beginnings is fully committed to promoting good behaviour standards within our setting. We aim to promote positive behaviour, encourage children to develop socially and to develop their sense of right and wrong.

The designated person responsible for Behaviour management is Sarah Breen (Deputy Manager) and Sarah Bridgewater (Nursery practitioner)

Equality and Diversity

New Beginnings values the diversity of the community we serve. We therefore strive to ensure that our services reflect the needs of all the people within the community. All individuals can expect to receive equal access to our employment and services.

We aim to provide an environment and atmosphere that encourages equality of opportunity for children, mother/father or carer and staff. Nursery practitioners are committed to treating each child and adult as an individual person in their own rights and to provide an anti-discriminatory childcare setting.
