What is SEND?
‘A child or young person has SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) 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.’
(SEND Code of Practice 2015)
This is a broad definition covering all children and young people from 0-25 years of age.
The SEND Code of Practice 2015 identifies 4 main areas of need:
1. Communication and Interaction
2. Cognition and Learning
3. Social, Mental and Emotional health
4. Sensory and/ or Physical Needs
All schools are required to provide information to parents about how they will support children and their families if a child is deemed to have special educational needs. The provision and support offered at St George's CE Primary School is constantly evolving and adapting to the needs of its pupils. As a result the information on these pages concerning SEND will be reviewed and updated regularly.
For further information please read the school SEND Policy below.
