About our SEND news

Latest news on SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) schools, educational institutions that cater specifically to students with special educational needs and disabilities. These schools offer tailored educational programs and support services to meet the needs of students with a wide range of disabilities, including physical, sensory, cognitive, and behavioural challenges.

SEND schools may be maintained by local authorities or may be independent schools, and they may offer both mainstream and special education. Some SEND schools may also offer residential care for students who require it.

The goal of SEND schools is to provide students with the necessary support and resources to reach their full potential, both academically and personally. This may include specialised teaching methods, assistive technology, and therapies such as speech and language therapy or occupational therapy.

In the UK, the provision of education for students with SEND is governed by the Children and Families Act 2014 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. These legislation outline the rights of students with SEND to receive an education that meets their needs, as well as the responsibilities of local authorities and schools to provide this education.
