If you think your child or young person has Special Educational Needs and disabilities (SEND)
Working in partnership with schools, settings and multi-agency teams across Education, Health and Social Care we can help ensure children and young people with SEND have equal access to opportunities and the necessary support to meet identified needs.
We work closely with schools to support children and young people who need help.
The first discussion that we would encourage parents and carers to have is with the school or setting their child or young person attends. The Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) is key to ensuring children's and young people's SEN needs are met. Their name will be on the school or setting website and the support they offer will be outlined in their 'SEN Information Report'.
If you require more information about what schools and settings, health services and the Council offer to support families:
