At Bedford Nursery Schools Federation we promote inclusive practice for all children.

We belive that early identification of additional needs along with a caring, supportive environment ensures that all children receive the best possible start to their educational journey.

The Federation has a dedicated SENDCO, Ms Suzie Hoefkens who works closely with the SEND support staff and parents.  Regular meetings are held with parents and their views and input to their child's education is encouraged.

If you have any concerns about your child please come in a speak to Suzie.  If she is not immediately available a suitable appointment will be made for you as soon as possible. 

If you have concerns about the support your child received please follow our schools complaint policy.
