- SEN Units: provide special provision within a mainstream school where children are taught mainly within separate classes.
- Resourced Provisions: provide places that are reserved at a mainstream school for pupils with a specific type of SEN, taught mainly within mainstream classes, but requiring a base and some specialist facilities around the school.
