Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Q- What is ‘Special Educational Needs’?

A- A child or young person has a special educational need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child or young person is considered to have a learning difficulty or disability if they:

  • ‘have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
  • have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age’.

(Code of Practice 2014)

The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Information Report details who is responsible for SEN in school and the many steps that are taken to support pupils in their learning and progress.
