The Special Needs Department at County Upper is led by our Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Thuell.
A child has a Special Educational Need if they have a learning difficulty or disability which requires provision which is special or additional to that normally available for pupils of the same age. There are four broad areas of need:
Communication and Interaction ‐ such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or a speech and language disorder
Cognition and Learning ‐ this includes students with dyslexia or dyscalculia
Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs
Sensory and Physical Needs.
