SEND

Great Harwood Primary School is committed to providing an appropriate and high-quality education. We believe that all children, including those identified as having a special educational need or a disability (SEND) have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life. We believe that all children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe. We are proud of the fact that we are an inclusive school, and all our children are special and individual. 

 

What are special educational needs? 

 

A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age. This may be:

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Social, mental and emotional health
  • Sensory/physical

 

Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting.
