What are Special Educational Needs?

‘A child has special educational needs if he or she has learning difficulties requiring special educational provision to be made.’

A child has learning difficulties if he or she:

  • has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children the same age.
  • has a disability which prevents or hinders the child from making use of educational facilities of a kind provided for children of the same age in other schools in the LA.
