Great Crosby Catholic Primary School

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

 

A child has “special educational needs and disabilities” if they have a learning difficulty and/or a disability that means they need special health and/or educational support. We shorten this to SEND. 


At Great Crosby we work closely with professionals, including educational psychologists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and others, to provide the best possible education for our pupils with SEND.
