What is Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)?
According to the Code of Practice (2014), 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.
