Find details on advice and specialist support for a child or young person with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND).
We are responsible for providing services which address the needs of all children and young people, including the most disadvantaged and vulnerable and those with SEND.
This is done through:
  • supporting the drive for high educational standards for all children and young people, paying particular attention to the most disadvantaged groups;
  • working with children, young people, parents and partners to promote prevention and early intervention and to offer early help so emerging difficulties are dealt with before they become more serious;
  • helping to improve educational attainment, narrowing the gaps for the most disadvantaged and promoting the wider wellbeing of children and young people, including at key transition points; and
  • ensuring children and young people who have SEND can access high quality provision that meets their needs.
