A pupil has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

They have a learning difficulty or disability if they have:

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or

  • A disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools

Special educational provision is 'additional to, or different from', that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools.


If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school SENDCo. marie.tyrrell@acexcellence.co.uk
