SEND Support in Mainstream Schools
How does the SEND 0-25 Years Code of Practice identify Special Educational Needs?
“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 him or her. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
• has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age
• has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post 16 institutions.”
