Definition of Special Educational Needs and Disability
The 0-25 SEND Code of Practice (2015) states that a child or young person has a special educational need or disability if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her.
A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning
difficulty or disability if he or she:
- has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age,
- has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.

These are defined further in the SEND Code of Practice:

At William Reynolds Primary School and Nursery we have a graduated approach to SEND, ensuring early identification of needs and a continuum of support for children in order to enable them to make progress and reach their fullest potential.
William Reynolds Primary School and Nursery prides itself on being an inclusive school, committed to the education of the whole child. We seek creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate children to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with creative contexts providing the stimulus to engage all children in quality experiences. We strive to achieve high academic standards for all children and believe this is best achieved through teaching and learning activities which are engaging, innovative and personalised to our children’s needs.
