Reasonable Adjustments

Reasonable adjustments are changes that are made for a person with special educational needs and or disabilities. These changes help remove or reduce barriers for people so that they are not disadvantaged, compared to others.


Initially contact your child/young person's educational setting. Ask to speak with the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO). Discuss your concerns with the SENCO and the impact this is having on the child/young person.

If changes do not take place contact the SENCo and look at the SEND provision policy.

If a child or young person has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), contact your case officer at Special Educational Needs Assessment and Review Team (SENART).

Your child or young person's education setting should have a complaints policy on their website.
