At Bowmansgreen Primary School we strive to support all children to enable them to achieve at school. In order to do this many steps are taken to support them through their learning journey. Quality teaching is vital; however for some children there are occasions when further additional support may be needed to help them achieve their targets.  These children may receive special educational provision, a definition of special educational needs is as follows:

Definitions of special educational needs (SEN) taken from section 20 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

 a)     have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or

 b)    have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.

 A child under compulsory school age has special educational needs if they fall within the definition at (a) or (b) above or would do so if special educational provision was not made for them.

 Children must not be regarded as having a learning difficulty solely because the language or form of language of their home is different from the language in which they will be taught.

All schools are required to have a SEN policy, recently the government made some changes to the Education of children with Special Educational Needs and therefore we have reviewed our policy.
