Between May 2016 and February 2017, an external review was carried out of the support children and young people with SEND receive from the council and schools. As well as looking at information about children and young people, the reviewer spoke to groups of them and to groups of parents and carers. Here is a summary of what was found during the review and recommendations for actions. Some of the recommendations are already being acted upon, including additional staffing and the start of work on a new Strategy for Children and Young People with SEND. There will be updates posted on the Local Offer to keep you informed.
