Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

A significant number of children may need special educational provision at some time during their school lives. For some children, the provision may last for only a short period of time. However, for other children the provision may last longer.
The Education Reform Act ensured that all pupils shared the same statutory right to a broad and balanced curriculum, including the National Curriculum.
Special educational provision covers a wide range of need including sensory impairment, physical disability, communication, learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties, as well as children with exceptional ability.
Children who have special educational needs at Fairfield are identified and then supported according to the guidelines specified in the Special Needs Code of Practice.
