What is SEND?

SEN

A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. Special educational provision means educational provision that is additional to, or different from, which is made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting in England.

DISABILITY

Many children and young people who have SEN may have a disability under the Equality Act 2010 –that is ‘…a physical or mental impairment which has a long-term and substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, and cancer.

FOUR BROAD AREAS

The Department for Education has identified four broad areas which cover a range of needs. These are defined in the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice – 0-25 years, January 2015.
