What is SEN?
Special educational needs (SEN) that affect a child’s ability to learn can include their:
  • behaviour or ability to socialise, eg not being able to make friends
  • reading and writing, eg they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, eg they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • physical needs or impairments
Legal requirements - which Acts we comply with
Legally we must comply with section 69(2) of the Children and Families Act 2014, and Regulation 51 and schedule 1 of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.

Admissions arrangements for children with SEN - what will happen when they apply?
If your child is coming through nursery or pre-school then please speak to your child's SENCo to arrange a transition visit. When applying to Bury and your child has additional needs then please ask to speak to Andrew Westcott, the SENCo at Bury.

Steps we have taken to ensure SEN children are treated fairly
All children have the right to an education regardless of their ability. At Bury we ensure our children have access to any required resources and outside agencies.
