What is SEND?
SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. According to the Code of Practice (January 2015), a child has SEND if:
- they have a learning difficulty or disability that means that he or she has significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of the other children of the same age or
- they have a disability which significantly prevents or hinders him or her from making use of the educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post 16 institutions.
