All educational settings are expected to support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

This is done through a `graduated response` - a `stepped` approach to providing support that meets the needs of every child and young person at the earliest opportunity. The first 3 boxes on this page outline the graduated response, and you can find additional information here.

A special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCo/SENDCo) co-ordinates special educational needs provision for children and young people who require additional support in an education setting.

If you are worried about your child's progress, speak to their teacher or form tutor in the first instance.
