Welcome to our Special Educational Needs (SEN) Information Report which is part of Durham County Council’s Local Offer for children and young people with Special Educational Needs.
Our SEN Information Report will provide details about how we implement our policy and practice to deliver high quality SEN provision for children and young people with SEN.
A child or young person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made that is additional to or different from that made generally for other children or young people of the same age. (CoP 2015, p16)
