Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

A child has special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child has a learning difficulty if they:-

Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age;
Have a disability, which either prevents or hinders the child from making use of the educational facilities of a kind, provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local authority.

Nationally, about 20% of children may have some form of special educational needs at some time. The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SEND) manages the support within the school. The school has a wide range of support programmes.
