Special Educational Needs

The broad aims of education for pupils with special educational needs reflect those relevant to all students and include

  • enabling the student to live a full life and to realise his or her potential as a unique individual through access to an appropriate broad and balanced curriculum
  • enabling the student to function as independently as possible in society through the provision of such educational supports as are necessary to realise that potential
