Special educational needs and disability (SEND Local Offer)

To ensure the best outcomes for children and young people we work with a range of services and agencies across education, health and care to improve access and inclusion. We aim to identify special educational needs and disability (SEND) as early as possible and provide the right support built around the needs of children and young people.
