SEND Information Report


At Bournville Village Primary School, all children with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) are offered full access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

We aim to support pupils with SEND, so that they can access the same opportunities as others within school, enjoy their school life and fulfil their potential. 


Through our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities policy and information report we:

  • Set out how our school assess, identifies and plans provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
  • Explain the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved, including pupils, staff and parents/carers, in providing for pupils with SEND.
  • Explain the technical terms and abbreviations used (see our jargon buster).


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)


A pupil has SEND if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

They have a learning difficulty or disability if they have:

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of the others of the same age, or
  • A disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools

Special educational provision is educational or training provision that is additional to, or different from, that made generally for other children or young people of the same age by mainstream schools.
