A child is defined as having SEND if he or she has a learning difficulty, which calls for a special educational provision, namely provision different from or additional to that normally available to learners of the same age or, that the child has a disability, which hinders them from making use of educational facilities from those generally provided by schools for children of the same age, within the same area. We aim to identify special educational needs within pupils as early as possible.
The Link School uses a variety of ways to identify pupils with SEND needs, this includes;
The process of identification is always carried out in a manner which helps and supports a student to support with any barriers to learning.
