SEND Policy & Code of Practice
A child 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 young person has 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 in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.
