Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Q.  What is ‘Special Educational Needs’?

A.  A child or young person has a special educational need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child or young person is considered to have a learning difficulty or disability if they:

  • ‘have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
  • 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’.

(Code of Practice 2014)
