Cognition & Learning

This area of need includes specific learning difficulties (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia, as well as moderate (MLD), severe (SLD) and profound and multiple (PMLD) learning difficulties. 


At RFPS, we have a tiered approach to our SEND provision, so that all children can access everything they need to be able to access the best from their education.

What is Cognition and Learning? 

SEND Code of Practice:  

“Support for learning difficulties may be required when children and young people learn at a slower pace than their peers, even with appropriate differentiation. Learning difficulties cover a wide range of needs, including moderate learning difficulties (MLD), severe learning difficulties (SLD), where children are likely to need support in all areas of the curriculum and associated difficulties with mobility and communication, through to profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), where children are likely to have severe and complex learning difficulties as well as a physical disability or sensory impairment.  

Specific learning difficulties (SpLD), affect one or more specific aspects of learning. This encompasses a range of conditions such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia”.
