WHAT ARE SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS?

 

Definitions of special education needs taken from section 20 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

A child has special educational needs if he or she has learning difficulties that call for special educational provision to be made.

A child has learning difficulties if he or she:

  • Has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age.

  • Has a disability which prevents or hinders the child from making use of educational facilities of a kind provided for children of the same age in other schools within the Local Authority.

 

Homefields  Primary School values the abilities and achievements of all its pupils, and is committed to providing each pupil with the best possible environment for learning.

 

THE SEND INFORMATION REPORT

 

The governing bodies of maintained schools and maintained nursery schools and the proprietors of academy schools must publish information on their websites about the implementation of the governing body’s or the proprietor’s policy for pupils with SEN.
