Areas of SEND
At Newker Primary School, we have experience of supporting children and young people with a wide range of needs. As stated by the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice, there are now four broad areas of SEND. These areas of need are:
Communication and Interaction
This area of need includes children with Autism Spectrum Condition and those with Speech, Language and Communication Needs
Cognition and Learning
This includes children with Specific Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties
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
Sensory and/or Physical Difficulties
This area includes children with hearing impairment, visual impairment, multi-sensory impairment and physical difficulties.
We work with a range of external agencies to support us to ensure we provide the best support for every child on the SEND register.
