Statutory Special Educational Needs Service

The SEND service, like many services across the UK is currently experiencing higher than normal staff sickness. This is having an impact on our service delivery. We are reviewing systems to mitigate this issue. We recognise the importance of timely communication. However, we respectfully thank parents and carers for their patience and support at this time.

The Statutory Special Educational Needs (SEN) Service is responsible for: 

  • The Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment processes
  • The transfer of existing statements of SEN and Learning Needs Assessments into EHC plans
  • The maintenance and review of existing Statements of SEN 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 SEN.

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