Special Educational Needs

 

Introduction:

 At Abbeywood Community School, we believe passionately that each student has personal and unique needs. We work hard to ensure that all students with additional needs are identified quickly and support put in place so that they make the very best progress that they can.

Definition of SEN:

At different times in their school career, a child or young person may have a special educational need. The Code of Practice 2014 defines SEN as:

A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.

There are four main areas of SEN:

1. Communication and interaction

2. Cognition and learning

3. Social, mental and emotional health

4. Sensory and/or physical

 We have a specialist Resource Base on site, commissioned by the Local Authority for 25 students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
