What is SEND?
Everyone learns in different ways and at different rates. Many children and young people will therefore need extra help at some time during their education. In most cases schools and settings will help them overcome any difficulties by providing work that is suitable for their level of ability. This is called differentiation.
However, some children and young people will have a learning difficulty or disability that requires special educational provision. This is provision that is different from and additional to that generally available to pupils of the same age. These children and young people may be identified as having special educational needs (SEN).
By working together in school, with parents, colleagues from within PHMAT and outside agencies, Berrybrook ensures that the curriculum provided is accessible to all pupils, in accordance with the Equality Act (2010) and Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations (2014).
