Sometimes children need additional support for some or all of their time at school. ‘Special educational needs’ (SEN) describes any learning difficulty which means a child needs extra ‘educational provision’. Children might have a learning difficulty if they:

  • have significantly greater difficulty learning than the majority of children their age
  • have a disability which hinders them using general school facilities in their area
  • require special provisions to help them with learning or to help them attend school

The following information details the types of support available for your child at Skelton Primary School. It will help you to understand who can help if your child needs additional support, and how this support can be accessed. Please contact Sarah Cope at Skelton Primary School for any further information you require.
