Welcome to Learning Support

Welcome to the SEND area of our website.

At KHCA, we value the abilities and achievements of all our students and are committed to providing for each student the best possible environment for learning. We know that many students will have special educational needs at some time in their school life but with the right support and intervention all students are able to experience and enjoy positive achievement.


We have included brief information, some useful resources and links for websites under the four SEND areas of need as defined in the governments SEND Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years.

“These four broad areas give an overview of the range of needs that should be planned for. The purpose of identification is to work out what action the school needs to take, not to fit a pupil into a category. In practice, individual children or young people often have needs that cut across all these areas and their needs may change over time. For instance, speech, language and communication needs can also be a feature of a number of other areas of SEN, and children and young people with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may have needs across all areas, including particular sensory requirements. The support provided to an individual should always be based on a full understanding of their particular strengths and needs and seek to address them all using well-evidenced interventions targeted at their areas of difficulty and where necessary specialist equipment or software.
