Meet the team

  • Ashgate is a purpose built Nursery School with wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces to play and learn, all on one level and fully accessible to wheelchair users.
  • We have adapted the Willows Room to be Autism and Sensory friendly, creating a calmer space with fewer distractions and where a total communication approach can take place.
  • We are well supported by our local authority and health colleagues, such as the Educational Psychology Service, Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy Service.
  • We have an enclosed garden for playing and learning with grass and soft surface areas, with opportunities for every area of learning provided outside. We can help to plant, water and grow flowers, fruit and vegetables in the sensory and vegetable garden, then pick them and prepare and eat our own food.
  • There is a smaller enclosed outdoor area shared by the children in the Acorns room.
  • Children with SEND are able to access all Nursery provision with support. We are able to access specialist resources as needed.
  • We are experienced in specialist techniques such as Attention Autism, Makaton (signing for children at the early stages of communication), PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System)

For further information please read our SEND information report and our SEND policy below.
