Our SEND strategy

Our SEND strategy

Our Worcestershire Strategy for Children and Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) has been developed, by the Local Area Partnership, for the period of 2023 to 2026. The Strategy was approved at Cabinet on 28th September 2023. 

The strategy will drive an ambitious programme of work overseen by the All-Age Disability and SEND Partnership Board to change how we work with children and young people with SEND and their parents and carers.  The strategy sets out the vision that: 

'In Worcestershire we want all children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities to be truly seen and respected as individuals and to be the best they can be'. 

To deliver this vision, six strategic priorities have been identified based on what parent carers, children, young people and professionals have told us is important.

These priorities are:

  • identification and assessment of SEND is timely and effective
  • there is sufficient and effective SEND provision
  • there is awareness and understanding of SEND within local communities
  • outcomes for young people with SEND are improved as a result of effective planning, preparation for adulthood and better coordination of service delivery to ensure positive transitions as they progress through their education
  • CYP with autism achieve positive outcomes and the support required to enable this is in place
  • emotional health and wellbeing is actively promoted for CYP with SEND and their families and effective targeted and specialist support is available for those CYP at risk of, or experiencing difficulties
