Special educational needs (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 12 June 2020.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Details of what criteria / assessments are used to determine whether a child / young adult in Jersey is classed as having a "Special Educational Need or Disability" (SEND) and therefore is eligible for access to support measures in both primary and secondary school?

Moreover, at what point does a SEND become a formal "Record of Need" and what is the process that parents / carers have to go through in order to have their child recognised as a child with "SEND"?


We have published documents on our pages to provide parents / carers with full and transparent details of this process.

Below are links to the relevant pages and policies:
