'Special Educational Needs' is a term for children experiencing significantly greater difficulty than their peers. Children with a disability may also have special educational needs but for others their cognition and learning are unimpaired. We will make reasonable adjustments in provision for children with SEND which may include additional adult support. Most adjustment and additional support is around the basic skills of literacy and numeracy but can also include areas such as: speech, language and communication (including autistic spectrum, behaviour, emotional and social difficulties or attention deficit); physical or sensory impairment (mobility, motor control, visual or hearing).
