Definition of Special Educational Need - SEND Code of Practice 2015
“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:
a) have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
b) 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 in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.”
Definition of Disability - Equality Act 2010
‘A physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term effect
on the ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities’
All schools need to provide a
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Information Report
and a School Offer.
Below is our Information Report where, together with parents/carers, we have
created a series of questions and answers regarding what happens in school for children with SEND.
If there is a question you would like answered which isn’t included in the report,
or you would like additional information, please let us know.
The School Offer is part of the wider Local Authority Offer - see below - and is based on the requirement for all schools
to outline the support available to children with SEND.
Our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) policy is reviewed and kept up to date with the changes
that take place both locally and nationally.
If you would like to make any comment or discuss this policy in detail
then please speak to Mrs Bragg, our school SENCo.
Here are some informative and helpful websites where you can find further information and advice:
