The ‘Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years’ (2014) states that “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.”
At Littleover Community School (LCS) we believe that all students should be valued equally and must be given every opportunity to achieve their potential, both academically and socially. Through the school’s SEND Policy we actively seek to identify and remove barriers to learning and achieve inclusion within the school community. We consider ourselves to be a caring learning environment where students with SEND are inspired to develop high aspirations and independence to help them address and cope with future challenges.
