Early Years Resource Base

Willow Group 

The EYFS SEND Base at The Sue Hedley Nursery School offers children who are unable to access mainstream school a calm and supportive environment to enable their additional needs to be met. Places are allocated by the Local Authority based on individual needs.

All children have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) and may require full time 1:1 support from an Early Years Practitioner. The Specialist Teacher within the unit ensures that each child’s personalised learning and needs are met.

The unit is organised into areas to promote individualised learning and a sensory room is also available to provide the opportunity for the children to access a safe place where they can stimulate or calm the senses and support self-regulation.

The SEND Base work closely with all outside agencies and professionals regularly, including Educational Psychologists, health care professionals and the SALT team to provide a holistic approach in supporting the child and family.
