SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Special Educational Needs (SEN) is a legal term describing the needs of a child who has a difficulty or disability which makes learning harder for them than for other children their age.
You know your child better than anyone else. If you think your child may have a learning difficulty or a disability, they may be entitled to have Special Educational Needs support.
The Citizens Advice has put some information together to help you find out more about Special Needs Education, including guidance on what to do if you feel you need more support from your child’s school.
