Special Educational Needs (SEND)

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.
