Our SEN Provision

All children have a range of strengths and weaknesses, and it is expected that all children will find some elements of the whole school curriculum more challenging than others.

A child will be identified as SEN if the support they require to achieve is ‘additional to’ or ‘different from’ that of their peers. 

There are four broad areas of special educational need, which help to categorise the types of difficulty children may encounter. these are:

o Communication and Interaction

This area of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication needs.

o Cognition and Learning

This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.

o Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties

This includes any pupils who have an emotional, social or mental health need that is impacting on their ability to learn.

o Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties

This area includes children with hearing impairment, visual impairment, multi-sensory impairment and physical difficulties.

Whilst these areas may help us to support a child at Langley Park Primary school we believe that every child is unique and should be treated as such.
