At the Nawton and Rosedale Abbey Federation we have robust systems to identifying children within school who may have additional Educational Needs. This group includes both Able, Gifted & Talented children, who require appropriate extension within the curriculum and also children who may have Specific Learning Difficulties or Special Educational Needs.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are identified as:

  • Communication and Interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties
  • Sensory and Physical Needs.

A list of commonly used words and abbreviations that you might hear or be used in professional reports  when looking into support for your child with special educational needs and disabilities
