SEND - Special Educational Needs or Disability

A pupil has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. 

They have a learning difficulty or disability if they have: 

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or 
  • A disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools 

Special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools. 

All Haringey Schools are committed to and adopt a similar approach to meeting the needs of all pupils including those with special educational needs and disability (SEND). There is a shared expectation that all pupils regardless of their specific needs, will benefit from inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best progress in school, ensure they can actively participate in the wider aspects of school life and support readiness for the next phase of education and / or preparation for adulthood.
