About Portico West End
Portico at West End is attached to West End Primary School and we have been running for over two years. We were delighted to receive a “Good” rating in our very first OFSTED inspection in January 2013.
We open monday- friday 7:30 am till 6:00 pm. We are closed for bank holidays, and for one week over the christmas period. We have an open door policy, so please feel free to call in anytime.
Our Early Years Professional supports staff with planning effectively for the children and we provide an exciting, stimulating environment using “Tiny Tweeties”, for music and movement sessions to support good listening, early language and gross motor skills. Weekly visits to the conservation area and picnics for which pre school prepare their own snacks to develop self-help skills and strong fine motor skills.
All staff within the setting hold relevant qualifications, one of which is ccld level 4. All staff are enhanced disclosure checked.
We have very smooth transitions to school as we are so closely linked. Weekly chats with the Reception Teacher and a termly meeting between the Head Teacher and Manager ensure close links and effective relationships are in place.
Portico at West End also offers a before and after school club during term time.
Our Local Offer - SEN
In September 2014 there were changes made to the law for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
We have an updated SEN Code of Practice from the DfE (Department for Education)
The new law will result in some changes to the way you and your child receive help from your local council and ourselves.
