Special Educational Needs
This page provides an introduction to special educational needs
All schools have a duty to adapt the curriculum to the needs of individual children. This is known as differentiation. If your child learns more slowly or in a different way from other children the school can set different work or try different teaching strategies. If you are concerned about your child’s progress it is important to talk to the school at an early stage.
Most children will progress well through the school’s usual differentiation. Some children will need more help or different help from this in order to make good enough progress at school. These children are considered to have special educational needs.
Special educational needs can cover quite a wide range including physical or sensory impairments, learning disabilities, communication difficulties, emotional or social difficulties.
If your child has special educational needs you will find further information from the links below.
