SEN Provision

What is meant by Special Educational Needs (SEN)?


In the 1996 Education Order a child is described as having special educational needs (SEN) if they have significantly greater difficulty in learning or a disability that prevents access to school facilities.


Their SEN calls for special educational provision to be made that is additional to or otherwise different from what the other children of a similar age receive in an ordinary school.


If the school thinks that your child needs special educational provision they will be placed on the school’s SEN Register and the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) will arrange provision and monitor their progress on an individual education plan (IEP).


The school will meet with you to discuss your child’s  needs and agree the targets for their Individual Education Plan (IEP) and what you can do to help address their learning needs at home.
