Roselyon Nursery
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Roselyon Nursery provides childcare from 8.00am to 6.00pm for children from 2 and a half years.  We also have a Holiday Club which runs during school holidays.

In each session we provide an enrichment focus such as Forest School or Music delivered by a professional music teacher, in addition to providing a broad and balanced curriculum in line with the EYFS guidelines.  Our Staff are all experienced and very well-qualified.

We are a part of the Nursery Education Funding scheme and can provide 15 hours' free education for 3 to 4 year-olds.  You can talk to us about 2-year-old funding also.

Early Years Local Offer response

Learning and development

Systems and strategies we have in place to identify children that may require additional support

Staff at Roselyon are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for all children.  If parents or carers have concerns they should first talk to the staff, particularly their child's key worker.  If staff have concerns, they will talk with parents or carers as well as the SENCo.

How we identify and support children's learning and development needs

Each child's education is planned and monitored by their key worker or teacher.  Where staff have concerns, they will discuss with the SENCo and parents/carers a strategy designed to support the child.  Should progress not be as expected, staff will discuss with parents/carers various routes to access the support of external advisors.

Links we have to other agencies

We work with Cornwall Council through their 'local offer'; Cornwall and Isles of Scilly SENDIASS; we refer to external professionals through Cornwall's Early Help Hub; we can also recommend private Educational Psychologists and speech therapists to parents who choose this route.

How we support children transferring to school

Before joining Roselyon, children identified as having an SEN will have a school entry meeting, attended by parents/carers, Nursery staff and any involved external professionals.  This will plan how to make the transfer as smooth and easy as possible.  For children with medical needs, this will include identifying staff training needs to ensure that the child's neds are fully met.  All families will be invited to participate in several visits to the Nursery prior to starting.

As the child moves through the school, meetings with new teachers and support staff are arranged and teachers hold 'transition meetings' to ensure knowledge about the child is effectively passed on.


Specialist skills or training our staff have

We have staff with epipen trainng and emergency hydrocortisone injection training.  Staff have received training in a range of learning difficulties, including dyslexia, processing problems, short and long term memory difficulties and speech and language difficulty identification.  we have experience in helping children with heairng difficulties and physical difficulties such as cerebral palsy.

Support we offer regarding children's health and well-being

We work with parents and carers to provide general information and advice on children's health through twilight seminars as well as working with families with specific needs.  We are a growth mindset school and are keen to support children's mental health through the curriculum and individual support.

Ways we inform parents about how their child is being supported

Before any intervention is agreed, we work with parents and carers to ensure that all those involved with the child have a common strategy.  We meet regularly with parents - at least each term and often more regularly - to ensure that we are supporting the child in the most productive way.

Our complaints policy

We have a complaints' policy on our website -


Alterations we have made to make our building accessible

Our Nursery is accessible but parts of the main school building are not.  However, we are planning to move to a completely accessible building, a few miles away, in September 2018.

Facilities we have for personal care

In our new building we will have showers, although we do not have them in our current location.

Specialist resources we have

We have a range of SALT resources as well as resources to support a wide variety of learning difficulties.

How we include all children in activities, such as trips

We have the facility to include additional staff and volunteers, as necessary.  Pre-visits ensure that all the children in our setting can access activites and trips.
