How/when might your child be identified with SEND?

A child has a special need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

A child with special needs could have difficulties with:

  • All of the work in school.
  • Reading, writing, numbers or understanding information.
  • Expressing themselves or understanding what others are saying to them.
  • Making friends or relating to others.
  • Organising themselves.
  • Personal care.
  • Understanding and meeting school expectations.

They may also have a sensory or physical health need which may affect them in school.

Every child has individual needs that might affect their learning.  Sometimes children need special support to give them an extra boost or to help them catch up with other children of the same age. They may need this support for a short time or a longer period, but during this time they will be part of our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Register and we will keep a close eye on their progress, look carefully at what extra support they need and keep in touch with their parents.

At Beecholme Primary School we want to make sure that every child gets the best support we can offer to help them to enjoy their learning, feel confident and happy amongst their friends and make the best possible progress.
