ORDINARILY AVAILABLE statement - Provision the local authority (BFfC) expects to be made available by schools, early years and post-16 providers & SEN Support in Mainstream Schools

Statement of the special education provision expected to be ordinarily available in Reading settings, schools and colleges for children with special educational needs and/or disability aged 0 to 25

Taken from the special educational needs code of practice 0-25 years- statutory guidance (2015) Section 1.24 p25

High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children and young people. Some children and young people need educational provision that is additional to or different from this. This is special educational provision under Section 21 of the Children and Families Act 2014.

Settings, schools and colleges must use their best endeavours to ensure that such provision is made for those who need it. Special educational provision is underpinned by high quality teaching and is compromised by anything less.
