Life at Elthorne > Learning Support
Young people with every type of need are supported at our school and we make our best efforts to ensure that every child in our school makes good progress and is well prepared for adulthood.
The department for education has recognised four types of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), in the SEND Code of Practice 2014:
1. Communication and interaction
2. Cognition and learning
3. Social, mental and emotional health
4. Sensory or physical
As a school we will sometimes commission other professionals to help us meet an individual child’s needs in school or we may need to recruit staff or buy specialist equipment in order to support a child with SEN. www.ealing.gov.uk/send
