Students with special educational needs… make good progress because teachers and teaching assistants provide individual support tailored to their needs.
What is SEND?
The 2015 Code of Practice states that a student has special educational needs if she/he has a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for her/him. A student has a learning difficulty when they have significantly greater difficulty with learning than their peers.
There are four broadly defined areas of SEND:
- Cognition and Learning
- Communication and Interaction
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health
- Sensory and Physical
Special educational provision means:
- Educational provision which is additional to, or otherwise different from the educational provision made generally for students of their age in schools maintained by the Local Authority, other than special schools;
- Special educational provision is applicable to a student who is under the age of nineteen and is a registered student at a school.
