A special educational need can be a number of different things. For example, a child may have a physical barrier to learning such as a hearing impairment or disability; they may also be experiencing difficulties with their learning or behaviour. These additional needs can be addressed by working in partnership with parents and making adaptations to our provision in school. Some children may experience a temporary difficulty, while others may have a long term additional need.
Types of special educational needs can include:
- General Learning Difficulties – children whose learning progresses at a slower pace
- Speech and Language Difficulties
- Behavioural Difficulties
- Dyslexia (difficulties with reading, writing and spelling)
- Dyspraxia (problems with motor skills, organisation)
- ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
- ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
- Downs Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- A Hearing Impairment
- Other Physical or Medical Needs
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
