Special Education Needs

Special education needs and disabilities

Camp Beaumont welcomes all children regardless of any special educational needs, disability, or behavioural difficulties to attend and fully participate in our camps. We have a continued commitment to liaising and communicating with the local authorities and other relevant outside agencies. We do this to ensure all our procedures are in line with the current Department of Education guidelines, which enable early identification and allow us to provide the best possible experience for all children in our care.

The Camp Manager is the nominated person responsible for special educational needs and disabilities on our camps. We make our facilities and settings as accessible as we possibly can, with consideration to the different activities that we offer in an attempt to make all activities available to every child within their specific age groups. Each child identified with special educational needs and/or disabilities will have his or her needs met where practically possible. Children's progress is monitored and reviewed on a daily basis.

We are more than happy for any child to attend Camp Beaumont Day Camps. We cannot however offer 1:1 supervision. We provide staffing to meet the current ratios for Under 8's as 1:8 and Over 8's as 1:12. Any child who needs 1:1 supervision is still welcome to attend our camps, on condition that they bring along their own carer. That carer must have a current and clear Disclosure Baring Service (DBS) check and our HR team and camp management require a copy of that certificate prior to the child's commencement at camp.

As a company we provide training to all our staff with reference to the Department for Education's 'Code of Practice: Identification and Assessment of Special  Educational Needs' (2001), implemented from 1st January 2002. If we feel that a child within our care does need some further attention regarding their educational needs and their parent or guardian has not previously identified this to us, then we will ensure that this is discussed with their parent or guardian at the earliest possible convenience. Any matter of this nature will be treated in the strictest of confidence and where possible reasonable adjustments will be made to meet the needs of the child.

Camp Beaumont Day Camps 'Special Educational Needs or Disabilities Statement' shall be updated if there are any additions or changes to the current legislation. We shall ensure that we are aware of the current legislation by liaising with the appropriate agencies such as the Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership (EYDCP).

The Camp Manager and our Customer Care Team are available to discuss anything within our statement and will offer all the help they can to ensure your child has a fantastic holiday.

My five year old daughter loves the camp. It is her first time going to a camp and we could not wish for better.
