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)

All areas of the EYFS are catered for with our emphasis on the children having fun.
Ofsted rated OUTSTANDING, March 2014.

We have a wide range of resources available to meet all childrens needs. The use of Makaton leads to all children being included in the nursery routine.

We offer Spanish lessons (term time only) for pre-school age children as an extra option.
We also now offer yoga sessions for 2.5yrs plus as an extra option.
