Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

What is SEND?

SEND stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

A child or young person (up to age 25) has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her in order to support them to make progress.

A school, college or other educational provision, such as a specialist training or apprentice scheme, will often be able to offer this provision via the graduated approach to SEN Support.
