A school place for every child is an entitlement and is regarded as universal provision.
Every mainstream school is resourced to support the majority of children with special educational needs.
Classroom teachers are trained to differentiate the curriculum, which means teaching the same subject at different levels to children of different abilities.
All schools have a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) who usually has additional qualifications in special educational needs and/or substantial experience.
Schools receive core funding for every pupil on their roll. This funding will meet the staffing and resource costs of the school. Head Teachers and Governors of schools plan how to use this funding taking into account the needs of the pupils on their roll.
You should expect the same level of support for your child at every school across the city.
