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.  

Strategic Priorities

We have identified our three strategic priorities:

Priority 1

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

Priority 2

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 

Priority 3

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
