For ease we have reproduced the blurb on the home page to give you an idea of what is on this very important site.

Welcome to the Special Education Needs and Disability Home page. As part of the Children and Families Act 2014, the local authority has a requirement to publish information, advice and guidance in relation to Special Educational Needs and Disability. The page has been split into four core areas to enable you to navigate the webpage and find the information you require.

You will find useful information from Education, Social Care and Health in the following sections, together with information on parent support.

Comments, Complaints & Compliments Procedures

Co-ordinated Assessment

Information and Guidance

Personal Budgets

On the SEND Home page you will also find the link to the local offer of services, which will provide you with an array of services and providers covering 0 – 25 years both within the local area and regionally to support families of children with special educational needs and/or a disability.
