Special Educational Needs

Our Special Educational Needs Coordinator, SENCO, has undertaken many SEN related qualifications, including extensive Autism, Behaviour and Inclusion training.

As well as regularly attending Islington SENCO Forums for professionals our SENCO is also the PVI sector representative for South Islington.

We have a great deal of experience with children who have mild to severe and complex needs, ranging from speech and language difficulties, behavioural issues, sensory disorders and Autism across the spectrum.

We act quickly at KSN and, with permission, we refer to outside agencies, ie, Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy, Child Psychology and Family Support, to name but a few, to enable the child and family to have the best opportunity for growth and support at home and in the nursery.

We also signpost parents/carers to the Islington Local Offer for all SEND information, local support groups, family support etc. and we also can refer to local speech and language groups, i.e.: Little Leaps and Chatterpillars.

SEN children, with a diagnosis, will receive time every day with our SENCO to work closely on their targets and therapists recommendations as well as having a Keyworker who will oversee their wellbeing throughout their session.

If you would like to speak to our SENCO, Emma, informally or otherwise, about your child then please call 0207 253 9020, by email emma@kingsquarenursery.co.uk or pop in and see her between 9 and 12 Monday to Friday.

At King Square we believe that all children have the right to reach their full potential
