star this property answer text <p>The department have not made an assessment of this report. We are continuing to improve standards on literacy and to support schools and parents on special educational needs and disability (SEND) including dyslexia.</p><p> </p><p>Schools are required under the Children and Families Act 2014 and the accompanying SEND Code of Practice to identify and address the special educational needs (SEN) of the pupils or students they support. Maintained schools are given notional SEN budgets and should use this to pay for support to children with dyslexia where required. Schools must use their reasonable endeavours to make sure that a child with SEN gets the support they need – this means doing everything they can to meet children and young people’s SEN.</p><p> </p><p>The Equality Act is clear that a person (P) has a disability if — (a) P has a physical or mental impairment, and (b) the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on P's ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. All schools have duties under the Equality Act 2010 towards individual disabled children and young people.</p><p> </p>
