Specialist Provision in Cumbria

All schools in Cumbria make arrangements to support children with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Information on provision in each school is available from the school website.

Specialist provision is also available in our 21 resourced provision schools. These are schools which have developed expertise in a particular area of SEN and receive additional funding to enable them to make specialist support available.
