SEN and Disabilities Information

Special Education Needs & Disabilities (SEND) Information

Our education provision within mainstream Duke’s Secondary School caters for pupils with moderate learning needs.

The NCEA SEND Information Reports (available below) provide information on what services children, young people and their families can expect through the Duke’s Secondary School, including education, health and social care.  Knowing what is available gives you more choice and therefore more control over what support is right for your child.

They provide information on a number of things, including:

  • special educational provision
  • health provision
  • social care provision
  • other educational provision
  • leisure opportunities

The NCEA SEND Information Reports have been written to explain how we can meet the special educational needs of young people and their families, and takes into account the following documents:


Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years (January 2015)

Disability Discrimination Act 1995

Equality Act 2010
