White Rock Pre-school

at Hookhills Community Centre. Let's learn & play !

 

Policy Statement

 

At White Rock Pre-School we aim to ensure that our setting is genuinely accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community. We aim to ensure that all sections of our community have access to the setting through open, fair and clearly communicated procedures.

Procedures

 

  • We ensure that the existence of our setting is advertised in places accessible to all sections of the community.

  • Accept children from the age of 2 years – school age in accordance with our Ofsted registration conditions

  • We arrange our waiting on a first come first served basis, according to the term in which the child is due to attend. In addition our policy may take into account the following:

 

                a)  The vicinity of the home to the setting

 

          b)  Siblings already attending the setting

 

      We describe our setting and its practices in terms that make it clear that it welcomes fathers and mothers, other relations and other       carers, including childminders.

  • We describe our setting and its practices in terms of how it treats each child and their family as individuals.

  • We describe our setting and its practices in terms of how it enables children with disabilities to take part in the life of the setting.

  • Where relevant we monitor the gender and ethnic background of children joining the group to ensure that our intake is representative of social diversity.

  • We ensure our Equality and Diversity Policy is followed.

  • We try to be flexible about attendance patterns to accommodate the needs of individual children and families, providing these do not disrupt the pattern of continuity in the setting that provides stability for all the children.

  • Continue to consult our parents to ensure that our pre-school continues to meet changing needs.

  • We ensure that all our parents know that admission to pre-school has no bearing on a child’s application to join White Rock Primary School.
