• We will support our school community to increase provision for wrap around care for children with SEND and we will identify third sector partners to help us develop and pilot new delivery models.
  • We will work with parents, teachers and health professionals to review our systems and provide better support to parents of children with special educational needs. This will include a review of our assessments process so that we can make it simpler for parents and carers and reduce the timescales on decisions. We will increase the number of educational psychologists and improve the links between our systems and processes, so that EHCPs (Education Health Care Plan) are completed in a timelier fashion.
  • We will increase the support in mainstream schools for children with special educational needs.
  • We will work more collaboratively with third sector providers to support children and families across the borough to develop community-based provision for children with additional or special needs. To help this process we will explore the use of the council estate via our new community asset transfer strategy.
  • We will act on the voices of young people in our Borough who have told us they want us to improve the transition to secondary school and Post 16 provision, and to support them to take the next step and attend a school or college where they can thrive.
