Special Educational Needs And Disabilities

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At Flying High, we expect our setting to mould to the interests of the children, not the other way around. Our free flow, child-led ideologies mean the setting is perfect for all. We recognise that everyone is unique and needs an education tailored to their interests and development.

Children with SEND can find it difficult to attend education settings and can find their additional needs are ignored in favour of pushing formal academic learning.  We put Personal, Social and Emotional Development at the forefront of our education, giving children the foundations on which to build the rest of their learning.

Additional needs are properly supported by staff, led by an experienced, qualified and passionate Special Educational Needs Coordinator. Our small child:staff ratios allow for lots of 1:1 time for everyone.

We respect children need space and time to themselves. The team knows when to step back and observe the innate learning evolving, and when to offer guidance and push their experiences further.

They say “every day is a school day” and the same is true for our team.

Flying High staff undergo training to continually improve knowledge and understanding; often  dedicated to specific conditions or referral processes.

We have a wealth of experience and understanding of neurodiversity as well as some physical disabilities.
