Statutory SEND Service

Most children and young people’ special educational needs can be met within educational settings with universal and specialist support (SEN support). A few children and young people with complex needs will require the support of an education, health, and care plan (EHCP). 

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

  • The Education, Health and Care (EHC) Needs Assessment Processes
  • The maintenance and review of EHC Plans
  • Management and administration of statutory processes associated with EHC plans
    • For example: Change of school placement

The team work with: 

  • Children and young people with SEND
  • 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 deal with school admissions for children with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.
