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

As of September 2014, The City of Leicester has changed from acknowledging SEN students as School Action and School Action Plus to a single SEND Support category.  This is in line with the 2014 SEND Code of Practice: 0-25 years.  In line with the changes, the college strives to provide students with an effective differentiated support programme to enable pupils on the SEN register to access the National Curriculum and make progress in line with their peers.
