Update of our information on inclusion of pupils with special needs

Last update

Pupils with special needs are children or young people who find it more difficult to learn than others of the same age. They may have learning impairments or difficulties. In both primary and secondary education, support measures are offered to help them through their school career.

These support measures are adapted to individual needs and learning difficulties. They can therefore take different forms. Support may take place in the classroom, at school or outside of school.

Support for pupils with special needs takes the form of:

  • support classes;
  • support activities and special classes;
  • adapted classes;
  • psychological support;
  • therapeutic activities;
  • specific learning workshops;
  • etc.

The support measures vary depending on the age, difficulties, life situation and needs of the pupils concerned. To find out more we invite you to consult our recently updated information pages:
