Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy 2021-24
All different, all equal
A strategy to SEND us forward
The Dudley Area SEND strategy has been put together by Dudley Council, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group, Dudley Parent Carer Forum and partners including schools and health organisations. It sets out in straightforward terms our vision for the Dudley area SEND offer to children and young people (up to age 25) and their families.
The strategy describes how the Council will use its resources to remove barriers to learning, ensure that children and young people will feel that their achievements are valued, that they are happy and enjoy school, lead healthy lifestyles, feel safe in their learning environments and are appropriately supported in order to achieve their full potential.
It describes how the Council will work in partnership with other agencies and the voluntary sector to achieve these aims and work collaboratively to support the needs of families who deserve our help and support.
