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. (DFE 2015)
At Southwood we believe that every child deserves a fair start in life, with the very best opportunity to succeed. Teaching and Learning is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to ensure that every child has an entitlement to fulfil his/her optimum potential. High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of pupils. Some pupils will need educational provision that is additional to or different from this. At Southwood we ensure that such provision is made for those who need it. “High quality teaching, differentiated for individual pupils, is the first step in responding to pupils who have or may have SEN” (DFE 2015)
