Support for children with special educational needs

Equal opportunities for all children

The Education Department provides equal opportunities to all children so they can access education regardless of their circumstances. 

Your child’s teachers will use the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice and the guidelines for Ordinarily Available.

We ensure children are included by:  

  • providing a welcoming approach to children who have additional needs and their families 
  • using flexible educational arrangements according to a child’s needs
  • monitoring progress to ensure children are meeting their targets
  • working towards children achieving high or increasing levels of attendance
  • providing extra services and support in a child's school or setting
  • ensuring staff access and enjoy high quality SEN training
  • ensuring staff deliver high quality teaching for all children
  • using a step by step approach to meeting their needs

Concerns about your child’s education

If you have concerns about your child’s education, you should speak to your child's class teacher or form tutor. They’ll discuss your child's needs and explain how they and the school can support you.

If you still have concerns, you should contact your school's Special Educational Needs co-ordinator (SENCo). They oversee the support services within schools. 

If you would prefer to speak with someone outside of school, you should contact the Inclusion & Early Intervention Section at the Education Department.
