What is SEND?
The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice states ‘a child has special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty and/or a disability , which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.’
A child may be considered as having a learning difficulty if they:
(a) Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age; or
(b) Have a disability which prevents or hinders the child from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local education authority
(c) Is under compulsory school age and falls within the definition at (a) or (b) above or would so do if special educational provision was not made for the child.
