Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy 2019
Improving the lives of children with special educational needs and disabilities in the Dudley borough.
The Dudley Area SEND strategy has been put together by Dudley Council, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group, Dudley Parent Carer Forum, Working Together for Change 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 highlights our main priorities to help us all to plan and work together over the next two years to secure good outcomes for local children, young people and their families.
We have identified our three strategic priorities:
Working in partnership with families
Growing a way of working with families and individual young people as the basis for how we plan, deliver and review local provision
Planning and working together to make the best use of all of our resources
At the heart of this is a stronger approach to joint commissioning and the sharing of ideas, resources and supporting innovation across health, local authority and other partners
Simplifying help and support so that it is more accessible
We will build on the strengths of our local provision to offer the best mix of specialist and mainstream support that reﬂects the diversity of children and young people’s needs
