Hi, This is possibly going to sound like a daft question but is there anything I should be doing prior to having a child with Down’s syndrome start at my school nursery? They have accepted a part time 15 hours place for September. As far as I am aware the parents are in the process of applying for an EHCP and will name the school on there. I have spoken to the school’s SENDCO today and they have told me that this was all that needed to be done and that the school can do nothing more until we receive the EHCP through, meaning that the child will be unable to start in September if we do not receive this as we have no spare staff to be 1:1 support. Although I have a good few years of teaching under my belt I have never yet taught a child with Down’s syndrome and want to make sure that I am providing the best possible support for the child and parents, especially with things not being “normal” at school due to covid. I’ve tried to ask for guidance but don’t feel like I’ve had much! Are there any questions that I need to ask you parents before starting? Any extra steps that we could be taking to support? thanks!
