Special Educational Needs

A child has special educational needs if she or he has a:

  • Learning difficulty which is significantly greater than the majority of children of the same age
  • Disability which makes it difficult to use the facilities normally available.

Special educational needs are described by the Special Education Needs Code of Practice as falling into four areas. These are:

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and learning
  • Behaviour, emotional and social development
  • Sensory and/or physical.

It is estimated that between 15% and 17% of children have special education needs at some time in their school life and 3% of those may require extra provision through a Statement of Special Educational Need.

Parent Partnership

The Lincolnshire Parent Partnership service supports parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs.
