Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Ashlawn School is a school in which the learning and teaching, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter. The approach to students with special educational needs and disabilities is set within the context of the Code of Practice 2015 and the aims of Ashlawn School. Regardless of age, ability or disability, all students are entitled to a varied education and should be provided with the support and opportunities to enable them to become lifelong learners.
