Continuum of provision

Some of our mainstream schools have specialist resource provisions (SRPs) for pupils with complex learning disabilities.

We also have seven special schools and a service for Education other than at School (EOTAS) which includes a Pupil Referral Unit. 

The distinction between mainstream and special schools is a legal one. A special school is wholly for pupils with SEND and is specifically for children with complex special educational needs and/or disabilities whose needs cannot be met within the mainstream schooling system.

Some non-maintained or independent schools cater wholly or mainly for children with SEND and are often referred to as independent special schools.
