Additional needs, often referred to as special needs, is a term applied to those pupils who need extra support in order to attain a level of achievement or realise their full potential.
They may be disabled (mentally or physically), may be financially disadvantaged, may be carers, may be home-schoolers, may be gifted or talented, or may be immigrants for whom English is a second language.
Additional help will be given depending on need but may include: help with reading, writing and comprehension, behaviour management, anger management, organisational skills, social integration and emotional literacy.
