Statutory SEND Service

The SEND service, like many services across the UK, is currently experiencing higher than usual demand, which is having an impact on service delivery. We recognise the importance of timely communication, and we respectfully thank parents and carers for their patience and support.

The Statutory Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Service is responsible for: 

  • The Education, Health and Care (EHC) Needs Assessment Processes
  • The transfer of existing statements of SEND and Learning Needs Assessments into EHC Plans
  • The maintenance and review of existing Statements of SEND and EHC Plans

The team work with: 

  • Education settings
  • Families
  • A range of services and other local authorities

They make statutory arrangements for children and young people with the most complex SEND.

They also handle school admissions for children with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.
