What do we mean by ‘special educational needs’?
At different times in a student’s development, a child or young person may have a special education need. This might include literacy, 计算困难或身体残疾以及听力障碍(HI)和视力障碍(VI).
The government’s 2015 Code of Practice defines Special Education Need (SEN) as:
A child or young person of compulsory school age has a learning difficulty if they:
- Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or
努力使特殊教育女童得到针对性支持，取得优异成绩. We monitor this progress very closely.
We aim to meet the needs of pupils whose needs fall into the following broad areas:
- Communication and interaction;
- Cognition and learning;
- Social, mental and emotional health;
- Sensory and/or physical needs;
- Medical needs.
What is disability?
The Equality Act 2010 gives the following definition of disability:
This definition of disability includes children and young people with long-term illnesses. 这些孩子或年轻人不一定有特殊需求，但两者之间可能有显著的重叠. 学校努力工作，以确保任何有医疗困难的学生将得到充分的支持. We work closely with parents and health professionals to meet medical needs in school.
The school will make a reasonable adjustment for students who need special arrangements. For example, we make sure that a student with a hearing impairment has the use of radio aids in the classroom.
