Copies of the pre-school’s policies are available to read. Please see Kay Fulker. These include policies on Admissions, Special Needs, Settling in, Child Protection/Safeguarding Children, Equality and diversity, Health and safety, Complaints procedures, Behaviour management, Confidentiality, Food and drink, Staffing and employment and non-collection of children.

The pre-school’s policies help us to make sure that the service provided by the pre-school is a high quality one and that being a member of the pre-school is an enjoyable and beneficial experience for each child and her/his parents.

The staff and parents of the pre-school work together to adopt the policies and they all have the opportunity to take part in the annual review of the policies. This review helps us to make sure that the policies are enabling the pre-school to provide a quality service for its members and the local community.

Special needs

As part of the pre-school’s policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special needs which a child may have.

The pre-school works to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2000) and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The pre-school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator is Kay Fulker

The management of  Pre-school

A parent management committee – whose members are elected by the parents of the children who attend the pre-school – manages the pre-school. The elections take place at the pre-school’s Annual General Meeting which is held in Term 6 each year. The committee is responsible for:

  • managing the pre-school’s finances;
  • employing and managing the staff;
  • ensuring compliance with the EYFS (2012) and Ofsted regulations;
  • making sure that the pre-school has – and works to – policies which help it to provide a high quality service; and
  • making sure that the pre-school works in partnership with the children’s parents.

The Annual General Meeting is open to the parents of all of the children who attend the pre-school. It is their forum for looking back over the previous year’s activities and shaping the coming year’s activities.
