Special Education Needs

Curriculum » Learning Support » Special Education Needs

A student may have a special educational need if –

  • The find it harder to learn than students of the same age.
  • They have a learning difficulty that calls for additional provision or different teaching arrangements to be made for them.

The Special Educational Needs Code of Practice has the following stages:

School Action

If your child is at School Action their needs will be met using the Provision Map. The detailed provision map can be found on this website. If you would like a copy through the post please contact the school.

School Action Plus

After a review of your child’s IEP it may be necessary to involve outside agencies.

Statutory Assessment

For a very few students the help given by school through Action Plus may not be sufficient. It will then be necessary for the school to consider asking the LEA to initiate a statutory Assessment.

Statement of Special Educational Needs

The LEA issues a statement determining what special arrangements your child needs.
