In the Netherlands children may go to primary school from the age of four. Most children go to primary school for eight years. Children with learning difficulties can go to a special school for primary education. Special education may be the best option for children who need more support. Since August 2014 schools have a duty of care to offer all pupils an appropriate place. This is referred to as appropriate education.
