Special educational needs
It is important that all young people have access to the whole school community, can participate in it and make progress.
In Salford, we provide a number of services which seek to ensure the presence, participation and progress of all Salford children.
Children with special educational needs
Every child is different in the way that they learn. Schools take account of this when they plan their work.
A few pupils need special or different arrangements, sometimes just for a short time, sometimes for the whole of their school life.
Pupils who need this extra help have special educational needs.
Find out more by visiting the special educational needs pages.
Salford LA is committed to working in partnership to provide better education for all. It promotes the inclusion of children and young people with special educational needs (SEN).
