Additional support needs

We have a duty to make adequate and efficient provision for the additional support of each child and young person with additional support needs.

Many young people experience short term difficulties in learning that can be quickly remedied by additional help.  A small proportion, around 20%, may need specialist support to help maintain steady headway.  Between 1% and 2% of children and young people have difficulties that are long term and require particular arrangements or provision. 

We are committed to give the best opportunities for all children and young people.
