Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Strategy 2015 – 2018

We  launched a new SEND Strategy in September 2015  to ensure that children and young people with SEND in Hertfordshire receive the right support in their educational settings. We have identified a number of priorities for the next three years and set up ten workstreams to address these. Representatives from schools, parents and services are involved in all aspects of the work.

What will success look like?
  • Teachers and staff in schools and settings are confident in meeting a wide range of needs
  • Children and young people who have  SEND and their parents  feel welcomed in their school and setting and know that their views are listened to and valued
  • Parents feel confident that the school and setting  has the skills to meet their child’s needs
  • Children and young people with SEND are able to attend a local school or setting alongside their friends, siblings and other children in their community
  • Children and young people with SEND  are able to achieve their aspirations and potential
  • Young people feel prepared for adulthood and supported into further education and employment
  • Local schools work together and in partnership with the Local Authority and parents  to review and improve provision
