What are Special Educational Needs?
At different times in their school life, a child or young person may have a special educational need. The Code of Practice 2014 defines SEN as follows:
“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special education provision to be made for him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
a) Has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age, or
b) Has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16.”
The Code of Practice identifies four broad areas of need:
1. Communication and interaction
2. Cognition and learning
3. Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
4. Sensory and/or physical needs (SEND CODE OF Practice, p.97)
