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

The plan will then be implemented for a period of time before it is reviewed again.
The plan will be reviewed by parents/carers, the student and teachers. The review will be looking at:
