Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

At St. Augustine’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, we believe that all children have the right to be happy in school and access a broad and balanced curriculum.  We enable a cooperative and productive partnership with pupils, parents, carers and teachers to enable this to happen.

Definition of SEN: Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of practice, Department for Health and Education, January 2015

“A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her which is different from, or additional to, that normally available to pupils of the same age.”
