[ Inclusion , SEN and equal opportunites policies are a legal requirement for settings and they should clearly state how the provision ensures that all children and their individual needs are catered for. Every child with special needs should have an individual education plan and the
setting should work in partnership with parents and other agencies involved for the benefits of the child.
Pre-school settings should state their commitment to ensuring that diversity is reflected and valued within the provision and the practice should reflect this, for instance, newsletters should show awareness of the fact that many parents do not speak English as a first language and if it is not possible to translate them then they should be written in clear easy to understand format. The environment shoud be welcoming and show images of people from a variety of cultures. Children's background and cultures must be give respect and treated with equal concern. It is the responsibility of the setting to ensure that all children and their families are welcomed, valued and given accesss to the provision. ]
