Pupils with special educational needs

Some children find it much harder to learn and make progress than other children of the same age and may need extra help in school.

It is estimated that one in five children will have special needs at some time during their school life and most of these needs can be met through careful planning. This may include changing how lessons are taught and/or extra support being provided by the school.

Outside professionals

Sometimes a school will need to ask for extra advice from outside professionals such as:

  • The Child and Community Psychology Service
  • Social Communication Service
  • Learning Support Service
