What is a Special Educational Need?
The Code of Practice (2015) states that, ‘A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person who has a learning difficulty or disability if they: (a) have significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or (b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of hte same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions’.
