At some point during their school lives, many children will suffer from a learning difficulty. For most, the problem will be remedied by some careful explanation, but for others the problem may be more permanent. At Nendrum College we aim to provide a safe and effective learning environment for all our pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs. Our emphasis is on creating a positive atmosphere in which all pupils are content and prepared for learning to take place. We provide a welcoming environment for all pupils, at the same time recognizing that each pupil is an individual with differing needs. 

The term Special Educational Need may refer to difficulties associated with: 

Cognition and Learning including Dyslexia/Dyscalculia

Social Behavioural Emotional and Well-being 

Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Sensory Impairment (Hearing/ Sight)

Physical Needs 

Medical conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may cause a pupil to have special educational needs in relation to one or more of the categories above.
