At Bridport Primary we use the definition for SEND from the SEND Code of Practice (2014). This states:

SEN: A child or young person has special educational needs if he or she has a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. A learning difficulty or disability is a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age. Special educational provision means educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from that made generally for others of the same age in a mainstream setting.

On this page you will find links to our Policy and Local Offer. The Local offer tells you the provision we make as a school for children with SEND. The Dorset Family Information Directory where all schools provide this information has a link to these documents for parents to access information about their choice of school.

We also have provided links to a variety of SEND organisations and information which you might find useful. If you have any further questions, please contact our SENCo Miss Aimee Bowles  (on maternity leave from December 2020) or the SEN Team
