Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) draft strategy

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Strategy (SEND) describes our proposed four year strategy to raise aspirations and improve outcomes for children adn young people aged 0 to 25 years with special education needs and/or a disability.

The draft strategy reflects the many changes and recomendations made at a national level including the equality Act (2010) and the proposal in the government green paper "Support and Aspouration: a new approach to special educational needs and disability" (2011).

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience All residents, Carers, General public, Parent, carers and guardians, People with learning difficulties, Young people
